Heritage explorer challenge and live dig at Prior Park

Runs throughout festival

This year Prior Park Landscape Garden has both a live dig taking place and a family friendly trail.

On Monday to Friday each week, a team of archaeology volunteers will be digging in the Pasture to uncover some long-lost water features of the garden. Having already carried out a number of survey’s the team look set to unearth Bason of Water by John Wood and a cascade dating back to 1758. You’ll be able to see the team in action and see the discoveries as they make them.

We’ll also have a family-friendly trail available every day. Grab a spotter sheet from visitor reception and find the six previous archaeological sites to see the history behind Prior Park.

Event is free, but normal admission prices apply.
