Archaeologists are to visit Anston Stones again this year after a successful dig in 2015.
The leader of the team has said they will welcome visits to the site by the general public whilst carrying out the work, more info as we get it!
Anston Stones is a SSSI (usually pronounced “triple SI”) a government designation for a Site of Special Scientific Interest. As such it is protected by law and damaging it can attract a criminal prosecution.
The site has many interesting features from Dead Man’s Cave to the mineral railway which runs through the site alongside Anston Brook.
