Cresswell Crags

Leave a comment

Class 3, who have been learning about the Stone Age, had a wonderful day at Cresswell Crags, home of the Ice Age Hunter. Creswell Crags is a limestone gorge honeycombed with caves and smaller fissures. Stone tools and remains of animals found in the caves by archaeologists provide evidence for a fascinating story of life during the last Ice Age between 50,000 and 10,000 years ago.

Creswell Crags is on the border between Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire near the villages of Creswell and Whitwell.
