CPD Day.jpg

Introduction

This tour will help to give you a fresh look at an old landscape along the beautiful Upper Dove Valley and beyond. The day brings the past alive using the landscape of the National Park visiting sites that date from the end of the last Ice Age to WWII. 

Background

Archaeology is the study of people and societies in the past. Although this can be achieved through the retrieval, analysis, and interpretation of their material remains, often through the process of excavation, it also includes looking at understanding and interpreting above ground remains such as buildings, lumps and bumps, and even whole landscapes. This tours allows you to see, learn and think about a number of these above ground remains from a wide range of periods. 

What Does The Day Involve?

You will be picked up from a central location in Buxton and taken to the start of the walk in the Upper Dove Valley. We will spend the day walking through a landscape that has developed over thousands of years and stopping at a number of points en route.

  

The tour will have a maximum of 7 participants and will give you the chance to look in depth at what may seem to be a familiar landscape. There are some elements that involve walking along trackways and farm tracks, and a single short but strenuous climb.  

The Cost

The cost for the day is £90 per person. Refreshments are not included, and you are advised to bring enough water/drinks as you feel you need. We will stop at a pub for lunch and have rest stops en-route.
