Workington Town Council is seeking tenders for the provision of archaeological services in relation to delivering two projects, an initial test pit project and the opportunity to design and develop a larger archaeological dig. This is a part of a funded project, by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), to develop a miner’s memorial at Jane Pit in Workington.

The initial test digs for this project will see you support and deliver a small scale community archaeology event at the site. This will include a mix of younger and older volunteers. The larger dig will be designed by you based on your initial findings at the site; this will also include a larger more, engaged community event incorporating archaeology, learning and sense of community.
It is expected for the initial dig to be carried out in summer 2018 with an application for Scheduled Monument Consent to be completed be the awarded company by February 2018.
