The next Westside Story archaeological walk is uncertain. We cannot get a reply from the tenant farmer over whose land we need to we walk.
Private tours can be arranged for groups at any time of the year.

It is helpful to us to know how many people are likely to turn up for a tour, so that we can arrange extra guides, if necessary. So if you do wish to come along or if you wish to arrange a private tour for a group, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01797 224446.
Tours cost £5 a head (proceeds go to WAS, which is a registered charity). A special guide book is provided for each tour.
Cellar tours will generally start at 2:00pm and lasts about 90 minutes or longer (depending on numbers), while the other tours take about two and a half hours. If a cellar tour fills up, we often put on an extra tour, starting at 4:00pm.
Under Winchelsea involves going up and down cellar steps, which can be steep and are often worn. You are advised to wear "sensible" shoes and to leave your hands free. Westside Story is partly across open countryside and involves climbing over stiles. Think about bringing a bottle of water and a sun hat in hot weather, and waterproofs in doubtful weather (we will still run the tour in rain).
All tours meet by the Town Well in Castle Street. You can find this on the Town Map or use your SatNav to get to TN36 4ED (Castle Street).
