Step into the past with Stroud Valleys Project


Since 20122, archaeologist Neil Baker has been delving into the secrets of the rolling hills known as the Heavens in Stroud, writes Kerri Tyler.

His Heavens Archaeological Research Project (HARP) has uncovered a unique
area with a rich industrial and creative heritage – and you can find out all about it with Stroud Valleys Project.

Neil will be leading guided walks of the Heavens on Sunday 12 and Sunday 19 February to reveal its hidden history of weavers, millers and clothiers; you’ll never see things in the same way once you know about the homesteads and mills that once dotted this ancient landscape.

The walk takes around three hours and the route is hilly, uneven and muddy in places, so bring your walking boots and some water.

Tickets are £7/adult and £3/child, and Friends of SVP receive a 20% discount when booking online.
