Join us between the 16th and 29th July in the excavation of a series of First World War practice trenches located within the Calderdale Countryside and Woodlands Team Long Wood, Copley, Calderdale. The site was initially recorded during our woodland survey in Winter 2017 as part of the Pennine Prospects National Lottery Heritage Fund project. However, very little is known about when the trenches were formed, and who excavated them. This is your chance to learn some #archaeological skills and help us to explore the #history of this site.
No previous experience is necessary and children must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Booking is essential, you can contact me at: Chris.Atkinson@pennineprospects.co.uk
