Event Details


Season one of  a community excavation will begin on Saturday 4 September, running until Sunday 19 September.

The Westmorland Dales Landscape Partnership are  looking for volunteers to help us with this fascinating excavation.
These days are FREE to attend but places are limited so please get in touch with which of the 16 excavation days you’d like to attend but be quick, we expect lots of interest.

  • This excavation is a great opportunity to uncover archaeology that could potentially be rare for the North-West of England. It will be led by archaeologists from Oxford Archaeology North as part of the Westmorland Dales Landscape Partnership Scheme.
  • No experience is necessary as all training will be provided, as will all the equipment. However, a certain level of fitness will be required due to the nature of the site.

To attend any of our excavation days, please contact Hannah Kingsbury (Cultural Heritage Officer) by emailing  or by phoning 01539 756624.
