Explore The Archaeological Way…
Follow The Archaeological Way and you’ll be walking in the footsteps of history, through an ancient landscape of Stone Age hunting camps, Romano-British settlements and Medieval Deer Parks. Nearby you’ll find Elizabethan Houses and a castle-cum-pleasure palace. Discover the Industrial Revolution and rise of the Derbyshire Nottinghamshire Coalfields. From pre-history to the present day, there is a wealth of archaeology to explore.
The Archaeological Way programme is aiming to develop an 11 mile (18.5km) multi-user trail between Pleasley Pit Country Park and Creswell Crags, to provide a key missing section of the Derbyshire – Nottinghamshire trails network. Phase 1, from Shirebrook to Poulter Country Park, was opened to the public in Spring 2015.
Making of the App….
Local Derbyshire firm Audio Trails worked with Bolsover Countryside Partnership and Limestone Journeys to develop the App, which features audio interviews with local people recorded by Peak Features and public artworks commissioned by Junction Arts. The App was funded by the Limestone Journeys Landscape Partnership and the Heritage Lottery Fund.
