The nationally important Lunt Meadows prehistoric hunter-gatherer settlement has been under excavation for the last few years in a wetland nature reserve managed by the Wildlife Trust.
In summer 2016 the official opening of the reserve marked a new phase in the site’s development with the provision of information boards and viewing facilities including those overlooking the archaeological site. This means that the completion phase of the excavations of the settlement can be viewed by visitors to the reserve in a natural setting not unlike the one in which it was originally located 8000 years ago.

This short slide-show of the events on the open day shows what visitors to the site can expect.

This is a silent video.
