''We're not just Potato Pickers - we're Archeologists!''

Victorian Potato Pickers

Volunteers picked the last few rows of  potatoes at the  National Trust's Little Heath Farm, Dunham Massey.

What an enjoyable and worthwhile day! 

Fantastic company,
really helpful and hardworking, 
the volunteers were wonderful....

Their enthusiasm for the historical context, support and engagement with the task in hand was much appreciated.

Night-soil treasures were uncovered as we dug into the soil with a real sense of wonder at making the connection with this grubby but productive part of our heritage.

All volunteers getting stuck in!

All enjoying a day of   November sunshine in beautiful surroundings.
