Heritage Writtle are a small enthusiastic community group based in the historic Village of Writtle in Essex,. There are some 30 members, from a wide range of disciplines, all of whom have an interest in archaeology and local history.
The group was formed in 2004, as a result of finding some Roman remains and road within 800 yards of the Village centre, which are being excavated and to date we have a cottage villa/workshop. Ongoing work is revealing a network of tracks/roads.
Heritage Writtle are active in the local community. They meet weekly throughout the year, host talks and annual lectures, organise digs and outings to various sites of interest. Members are also involved with local schools, providing hands-on experience of local archaeology and history as well as syllabus support.
