Friends of Thetford Forest (FoTF) Archaeology

Volunteers dig a test pit

Friends of Thetford Forest (FoTF) Archaeology undertakes archaeological research, focusing on historic documents and heritage sites. FoTF Archaeology work with Forestry England and with Norfolk and Suffolk Historic Environment Services and they give guidance and help with training.

2015 saw the group make a number of visits to site in and around the Forest, with clearance work being done at Ickburgh Wwarren Lodge and the installation of intereptation boards. In 2016, Friends began a new initiative - caring for a number of archaeological sites across the Forest, making sure they are not being damaged by encroaching vegetation and that they can be viewed safely.

More recently, in 2018, and continuing into 2019, FoTF were involved in various activities relating to the High Lodge Heritage Trail.
