Man’s “unauthorized archaeological activities” at Bexhill


A MAN has been caught conducting “illicit archaeological activities” in a public park.

East Sussex County Council contacted Sussex Police after a series of ditches were dug in Combe Valley Countryside Park in Bexhill.

The council provided the details of the person involved, and the agency’s chief archaeologist confirmed that no excavations had been discussed or approved.

Police Constable King issued a Community Protection Warning (CPW) after the man orchestrated unauthorized archaeological activity.

“The ditches have not been backfilled and could therefore have posed a hazard to people enjoying the park,” said a Sussex Police spokesman.

“While the terms of the CPW did not restrict historical research activities, they required prior written permission from the property owner, which had to be produced by all those involved in carrying out the work.

“Combe Valley Countryside Park benefits from the valued support of the Friends of Combe Valley – a small hard-working unit of volunteers who help to maintain the area and make it a safe, fun place to be.”
