Chester Grosvenor Park dig hopes to uncover historic mansion house

AN ARCHAEOLOGICAL dig under way in Chester’s Grosvenor Park may find previously unknown buildings associated with a great mansion house that was destroyed in the Civil War in the 17th century.
Experts from Cheshire West and Chester Council’s Historic Environment Team and University of Chester second year archaeology students may also find part of a Roman road to the nearby amphitheatre.
Simon Ward, principal archaeologist for Cheshire West and Chester Council and director of the dig, said: “It has been great to get back to digging with the students again.
“We are looking forward to a fruitful and exciting season expanding our knowledge of this interesting part of Chester close to the Roman Amphitheatre and Chester’s original cathedral St John’s Church.”
