WRG’s Bit In The Middle works on sites based mainly around central and southern England.

We draw membership from anywhere which isn’t covered by other groups, and even some who are! We have members from as far afield as Kent, Devon and North Wales, although most are from the home counties.

To see what happens on a work party view this video report from the September 2023 dig on Maidenheads Waterways (Thames back streams).

Weekend Dig dates for late 2024:

20th to 21st July – Cotswold Canals – Stroudwater Navigation
17th to 18th August – River Stour in Suffolk
21st to 22nd September – Maidenhead Waterways, Bray Cut
19th to 20th October – Cotswold Canals, Thames & Severn Canal
16th to 17th November – Maidenhead Waterways, Bray Cut
14th to 15th December – venue to be announced


Join us on a dig

We work on a wide variety of sites, based mainly around central and southern England, within easy travelling distance of the M1, M4, M5, M6 quadrangle; although we have been known to venture beyond.  (We’ve often visited both Chichester and Grantham.)

We have a working party once a month with between fifteen and twenty volunteers converging on a village hall on the Friday evening, ready to spend the weekend getting dirty, sometimes wet, and very tired. Oh and occasionally going to the pub too.

Get in Touch

There are lots of ways to get in touch about coming along to one of our events.

Email or fill in the form.

I will get back to you as soon as we can.
