  1. I’m lucky enough to live nearby and I’ve visited the site before on an open day last year. I’m taking a course in archaeology now. Is it possible that I can visit the site again at some point, just to take it all in, no digging of course! I have some fantastic photos of Old Jack, beautiful tree.
