A NEW home is being sought for several historical artefacts which have been discovered across the Daventry area.

The Community Landscape and Archaeology Survey Project (CLASP) of Northamptonshire currently uses farm buildings in the Daventry district to store some of its finds discovered in places such as Harpole and Nether Heyford.

However, the land owner of the site has sold the buildings meaning a new storage place is needed.

CLASP’s Norman Garnett said: “We need to find something sooner rather than later.

“The only problem is that because we are a community group, we do not have a great deal of money. We are looking for a philanthropist with storage space rather than an businessman. We don’t mind if it’s somewhere that needs a little bit of work doing to it.

“Ideally it would be nice to put the items on show but we will have to see.”

Anyone who can help out CLASP with new storage space can call Mr Garnett on 01604 755479.
