Event Details

Drop in and see some of the finds of a local fossil hunter!

Before the creation of Carsington Reservoir a local fossil collector scoured the meadows and Harboro’ Rocks caves for evidence of prehistoric animal and humans. Parts of his collection have been donated to Wirksworth Heriatge Centre.

This free drop in event offers the chance to see, touch and discover the bones of long lost mega beasts that used to roam around Wirksworth.

Head in, grab a cuppa and head upstairs to our studio.
