Big Moor through the ages
Sunday 7th April 2019 at 10.00am to Sunday 7th April 2019 at 1.00pm
Join a guided walk with our heritage team as they explore how people have lived and worked on Big Moor from prehistoric to modern times, and the remains these activities have left.
People have been living and working on Big Moor from at least the Neolithic (about 3,500 BC) to modern times. Our 2-3 hour walk will visit Bronze Age ritual monuments and agricultural systems; places where people lived and worked around 2,000 BC to the Iron Age; routes used by people carrying goods across the Pennines before turnpikes and tarmac roads, and how the Moor was used to help train soldiers during the World Wars.
Meet at Curbar Gap car park at 10am
Tickets £5 per person
Accessibility: Walk involves some steep ascents and descents and walking across rough moorland, so not really suitable for people with diminished mobility or young children. Water and wind-proof clothing and stout boots recommended.What's On
