A brace of archaeologists came to Norton Conyers yesterday bringing a drone with them; for a change they weren't scrabbling around in the mud but instead had their eyes turned heavenward.
The drone was filming the walls surrounding the walled garden searching for evidence of flues: the theory being that fires were lit in alcoves in the brickwork in order to force fruit. Whilst they were at it they also filmed the south lawn looking for traces of the medieval village.
