Archaeology and history will come alive in the tranquil Dove Valley when you discover the results from the ”Peeling Back the Layers” community project.
Meet archaeologists who led the investigations, and discover the results and finds from surveys, excavations and historical research. Encounter historic characters who farmed at Under Whitle over the centuries. Try your hand at spinning, dyeing cloth, reed-light making, butter making, or even become part of an oxen plough team! There are archaeological activities for children, medieval potage to taste, Tudor dancing and the appalling Pathetic Players perform “a play what they wrote” based upon Tudor documents!
The event is free but donations are welcome.
Find us at the Dove Valley Centre, Under Whitle Farm, Sheen, Near Longnor, SK7 0PR. Map Reference: SK107 635. Tel: 01298 83282.
