Tameside History Forum in conjunction with Salford University undertook an archaeological dig at Newton Hall. Over 500 photographs of the excavation can be found on their Photobucket gallery.
These photographs were taken at one of the open days at the end of the dig when Edward Montagu's Regiment of Foote were performing at Newton Hall.
Another photograph of the dig is on Hyde Daily Photo.
Some of the finds and more information about the Hall can be found on Old Hyde.
