Medieval track ways, benchmarks, moles and mudlarking…A walk with archaeologist Tim Campbell-Green is always educational and entertaining. (Apparently we need more jingles for this podcast…) This time we’re walking from the Palantine pub in Hadfield, via Lambgates to Roughfields - keeping our eye out for interesting stone markings, bits of pottery and gateposts. Here’s a link to the National Library of Scotland maps Tim mentions, where you can see all the benchmarks in and around Hadfield, plus what was about in the town back in the 1880s! (Turns out we were wandering the site of an old mill!) https://maps.nls.uk/geo/explore/side-by-side/#zoom=15.8&lat=53.46521&lon=-1.96680&layers=6&right=10 Get a big cup of tea and lose a few hours reading Tim’s blog ‘Glossop Curiosities’: https://glossopcuriosities.wordpress.com/tag/longdendale/ This pilot project was supported by Glossop Creates as part of their Pairings programme, matched with Matt Ross at the Peak District National Park’s Longdendale Environmental Centre in Tintwistle.
