Ankerwycke priory is on the east bank of the River Thames opposite Runneymede on land owned by the National Trust.  In 2019 and 2020, the Berkshire Archaeological Society was invited to carry out a geophysics survey of the site.

This survey revealed four landscapes embedded in the lands at Ankerwycke. These landscapes comprise a medieval priory sited on an island bounded by river channels and the River Thames, a Tudor to Georgian landscape which developed following the dissolution of the priory, a Georgian mansion and finally a 20th century landscape, when the Georgian mansion was used as a nightclub.

This event is free for members of AIM and MAS. Members of both societies will be emailed instructions on how to book a free ticket for this talk. Non-members can book from 1 May at
