A GROUP from Sheffield is one of the first in the country to receive a grant from the new All Our Stories fund run by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
The Friends of Gillfield Wood has been awarded £4,000 to explore the archaeology of Gillfield Wood in Totley.
All Our Stories is a brand new grant fund, launched earlier this year to provide opportunities for people to get involved in their heritage.
Sally Goldsmith, secretary of Friends of Gillfield Wood, said: “It’s fantastic that we’ve been awarded this grant.
“We know there is so much to discover and that, if we learn how to look from experts, the wood itself may reveal up clues to its past. We are all really excited about telling other people our findings and sharing the wood’s past with them.”
