Training: The Palace Quay & St Clements Chapel

18/09/2015  |  6 p.m.

Needle Corner, Shotley, Suffolk


Relatively little information exists regarding the remains of the intriguing St Clement's Chapel. Its location is noted on a number of old maps (click here for a view from the 1922 Ordnance Survey map of the area) and several aerial photographs from the late 1980's showing possible boundary walls and structures. Given the location of the river bank in 2015 compared to the location of the site on older maps, the CITiZAN team will be trying to locate any remains that are now being eroded out of the river wall by the Stour.

We're looking for volunteers to help us survey this fascinating site and will be providing training in a variety of archaeological recording methods. We will also be using the site to demonstrate our brand new smartphone app that will help our volunteers monitor sites whenever they visit the coast.

This is a 3 day event with a training session Shotley Gate on the evening of the 18th at 6pm followed by two early bird sessions recording on the foreshore from 7am (we have to work with the tides however early…!).
