RESULTS from an historic dig are to be presented at a Golden Valley church.

The main part of St Peter’s Church in Peterchurch is to be turned into an area to deliver children’s services in the autumn.

Pews have already been recycled and archaeologists from Border Archaeology have come to the church and have taken it back to how it was before its Victorian restoration.

Work in the vestry area has also uncovered new evidence about the early history of the building.

The results will be delivered on Thursday at 6.30pm.

“It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see history in the raw,” said secretary Enid Tarbox.

“Anyone with an interest in local history will enjoy what we have to show.”

Work at the church was the result of a partnership between Herefordshire Council’s Early Years and Extended Services and Peterchurch Parochial Church Council to deliver services from the refurbished building.

The rest of the building will provide additional facilities, including a kitchen, lift, library, meeting rooms and toilets and will be available for church and community activities.
