The Visitor Centre


Wildlife expert, conservationist and television presenter Chris Packham officially opened the centre in April 2014.  It was created to help explain the area, its history, wildlife, archaeology and geology to visitors.

Packed full of interactive displays, with lots of friendly, knowledgeable volunteers on hand, it’s a wonderful way to step back in time and see how our ancestors lived.  We look forward to welcoming you.
