Welly Walks

Monday 29 August (Bank Holiday) – Unearthing the Past


Get ready to get your hands dirty as we head out on an archaeological adventure to discover what’s hiding in the earth below!

Perhaps you’ll find an untouched relic, a priceless heirloom… or a boring-looking can of baked beans.

Whatever you dig up, you can expect to learn lots about local history, as well as having some summer fun in the great outdoors!
