Geophysical survey at Monea Castle

The results of the geophysical survey are just in for Monea! 

Joanna Leigh, the geophysical expert for this project, has identified a number of very interesting below-ground features in her survey. It looks like there may have been an old path running from the north-east to the south-west across the area while a number of linear anomalies just to the south of the castle give the impression that there may be ruined walls and pits in this area. We are also hoping that a group of strong responses to the west of the castle are the remains of ruined buildings – there are lots of stones sticking out of the ground in this particular area!

The proof in the pudding will be when we start to dig our Cuttings but there certainly seems to be lots to investigate.
