The Lea Castle Conservation Group have engaged Earth Sound Ltd to carry out a geophysical survey of Lea Castle, and work has now begun. This is a very exciting development as the survey will use the most up to date technology to survey the Castle site & reveal what lies buried beneath the surface without the need for excavation. The survey is being funded by the Heritage Council.  The results will be available before the end of the year.
