Woodland Archaeology Discovery Walk

Join us for a wonderful walk in the woodlands of South Lakeland and discover the archaeological history of Chapel House wood, Staveley-in-Cartmel. The woodlands of this area were intensively used to produce the raw materials needed for a number of industries for hundreds of years.

Chapel House wood is littered with the remains of this fascinating industrial heritage and is still used to produce oak for a timber building business. Its’ also a beautiful wood, full of wildlife, which Rusland Horizon’s very own expert and enthusiast, Edward Mills, will help you explore! You will see a range of features related to these woodland industries.

Minimum age is 14. Under 18's should be accompanied by an adult.
Dogs are welcome if kept on a lead at all times.
