    CASTERCLIFFE BRONZE AGE HENGE COMPLEX, COLNE LANCASHIRE - Saturday 4th August

    Post  lowergate on Sat Jul 28, 2012 11:38 am

    Saturday 4th August

    An afternoon field trip to CASTERCLIFFE BRONZE AGE HENGE COMPLEX that is located on Tub Hills above Colne in Eastern Lancashire - new evidence places this site into the Early Bronze Age/Late Neolithic as against the previous thinking that it was an Iron Age hillfort.

    Other local sites from that remote period will also be taken in.

    DURATION: 3-4 hours - back in time for us teas.

    MEET UP POINT & TIME to be given Thursday, 2nd August (LUGHNASADH - full moon) on this site.

    Good to see you back on the site Sunbeam, pity a number of bayards have tried to spoil this site in the past - 'may the sky fall in on them' ...

    After you left we went up to view Twist Castle, Ringstones and the stone circle - great day!

    Will let you know of future events.

    By the way Ray did you know that a few years ago, on work to the school near St Helena's Well (Marsden), a tiled Roman floor was uncovered (maybe a Villa complex) and that the school made some recordings.

    Could you look this one up Ray ?

    Best regards

    Nope, never heard of this John - its a surprise to me, although with that name St Helena. Maybe the school would have some record of this. Very interesting all the same. I have heard that a Roman altar has been excavated at the site of a Cumbrian Roman fort. This has an inscription to the god, Jupiter, in quite good condition. Awaiting further information.
