Many groups arranged to visit the project, either as active participants or just to see what was going on.

The Peak District Young Archaeologists’ Club (YAC) took part on three occasions over both the surveys and excavation, the Family and Countryside Education Group (FACE) who awarded the Innovative Learning Award to the TFIG in 2013 came for their annual meeting and to look around the site, The Hunter Archaeological Society visited also, as did members of the Escape Project (a programme commissioned by Derbyshire Dales Community Housing run in partnership with Derbyshire Dales CVS for people in supported accommodation).

We also had a group of home educators who came once then returned because they had such such a good time the first time.
