We set out to overcome as many of the disabling aspects of an archaeological project as we could, so that as many people as possible were able to visit, take part and see what we were doing.  In order to do this, we worked with accessibility consultant, Phil Chambers, who specialises in accessibility to rural heritage sites (click on Phil’s name to find out more about him and what he does). As well as making reasonable practical adjustments, our core team of volunteers also underwent training.

Click here to see what the site and location is like, and what facilities we put in place to try and ensure this was a project that welcomed everyone, enabling them to take something positive away, whether they were wheel-chair users, had difficulty moving around,  were visually impaired or hearing impaired, were diagnosed with ASD, ADHD, or a  multitude of other things, or whether they were just who they are, with or without a label.

All dogs on a lead will be welcome and of course that means assistance dogs.

If you have any questions, please do contact us.
