Heritage walk report: Ecclesall Woods 22 Aug 2018

This was an experiment to see if a mid-week daytime walk would attract any participants.  It did, 11 on the walk (could have been more, a further 2 missed the start point and one had to cancel).

It was also an experiment from the leader’s perspective, claiming limited knowledge and welcoming corrections and additions from the participants.  That aspect worked out OK too.

It was a pleasant woodland walk of about 7km featuring, as well as some items of lead-processing interest and extractive industries, other natural resources and non mining historical features dating as far back as 2-3000 BC.
