A chance to explore Sheffield’s Bronze Age past is on offer during a Walk and Wonder event to be held on moorland high above the city on Thursday, October 17.

The route will take walkers across Totley Moor to discover clues about the era’s jewellery industry.

A team from the Peak District National Park will help to explore the landscape above the four mile long Totley Tunnel.

Archaeologist Stella McGuire said: “In the Bronze Age people were living and working on Totley Moor above Sheffield, and we can still see traces of their lives today.

“Around 4,000 years after the Bronze Age, Victorian railway engineers and skilled workmen drove the Totley Tunnel deep below the moor.

“Thousands of people travel through the tunnel, but how many have stopped to examine the strange structures that the tunnel builders created on the moorland above?”

The tour will set off at 10am from Longshaw’s Woodcroft car park, returning at 1pm. The cost is £5 per person.
