If you've been to our meetings or have read the newsletter you'll know that we've been working on a potential new project. We're pleased to announce that we have agreement for an investigation of a possible section of the Walton-le-Dale to Lancaster Roman road.

We only have a 'window' of 2-3 days and we hope to mark out and remove turf on Sunday 23 September and complete and backfill on Tuesday 25 September, weather permitting. Owing to the location of the site, we are not able to leave trenches open beyond that time frame.
