Following last weekend’s Fieldwalking event, that took place on the Pentillie Estate, at Tinnel Farm near Cargreen, join the AONB team this Saturday to discover & clean what was found.
Around forty participants stepped back in time to discover how people used to live, by joining the hunt for archaeological evidence. Among the findings were flint flakes, a one-legged lead toy soldier in a Napoleonic hat, a horseshoe and a rubbing stone (disguised as a potato)!
This event is just one of many organised by Helping Hands for Heritage, to give volunteers in the Tamar Valley area new skills, and opportunities to meet new people.
Please meet at the Tamar Valley Centre, Drakewalls, at 10:00am to help clean, and learn more about, the finds. Call 01822 835030 for further details.
If you’re free on Sunday, why not pop along to the Moorland Garden Hotel’s Food Festival, near Yelverton. To coincide with the Delicious Drake’s Trail, the Festival is open from 12:00noon – 5:00pm and is a great chance to sample local food & drink. The AONB team will be having a stand there, so do come and say hello.
If you prefer something more hands-on on Sunday, come along to Wacker Quay in the south of the AONB, for a day of managing vegetation and bench installation. A great chance to find out more about the history of this fascinating military site. 11:00am – 4:00pm, please book by calling Dave Readman – 07792 483669.
