There is a free guided  walk  starting from Loftus Town  Hall on Tuesday  24th. August at 11:00 am 

We shall join Dr.Stephen Sherlock and his team who are engaged in archaeological studies at the site of the earliest commercial salt processing facility in Western Europe.

Dr.Sherlock will provide us with an update on recent investigations at this site and we will also have the opportunity to  see a demonstration of flint knapping  and gain an understanding of this very ancient craft from  specialist flint knapper, John Lord.

Information obtained  at this site together with current investigations  are  now considered to be of significant national interest as it  represents a transitional step  from  people engaged in hunting and gathering to a settled  productive community.

Walkers are requested to wear sturdy shoes or boots. Please bring light refreshments  and have waterproof clothing if needed.
