Community Archaeology Dig at Marple Lime Kilns

Last Update 10 Oct 2016 · Posted 4 Oct 2016 · Pamela Pearson

Do you love Time Team? This is your chance to be involved with this once in a lifetime dig.


Monday to Friday 17th to 21st and 24th to 28th October. 9.30am until 4pm each day.

Are you looking for something fun and a little different to do?  We’re going to excavate in front of the kiln tunnels, and we need volunteers to help us! We’re expecting to find evidence of the people and animals who worked and lived there, as well as the tramway… and hopefully a few surprises!


Free, suitable for all ages, no experience needed. Supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Marple Lime Kilns, Lime Kiln Lane, SK6
