Heritage Action members recently had a meeting in Stony Stratford with Dr Mike Heyworth, Director of  The Council for British Archaeology.  Various areas of common interest were discussed at length including heritage protection, the Treasure Act, metal detecting/artefact hunting and the over-arching current concern for everyone – the funding crisis and the government’s wish to fill the gap by encouraging the development of The Big Society.

All in all it was a fruitful meeting with much common ground being evident and a considerable degree of agreement on the way forward.
