Guided walking tour of Auburn Sands, 12th August, 10:30-12:30
Join us to explore and learn about the fascinating multi-period archaeology of Auburn Sands. During this guided walk you will have the opportunity to discover the area’s ancient and more recent archaeology.
Auburn Sands has been a hive of activity over the past 1,000 years, with Iron Age and Roman field systems surviving as crop marks. Artefacts from these periods frequently erode from the boulder clay cliffs. The guided walk will also take in the Deserted Medieval Village at Auburn Farm.
The area is also home to some of the best preserved wartime defences in the Yorkshire. Infantry defences from both the First and Second World Wars survive to tell the story of the wartime invasion scares. There will be the opportunity to investigate what these surviving defences tell us about military defensive strategy at the time.
The walk will be across relatively flat and stable ground; however, the route will be around 6km from start to finish. Appropriate clothing and footwear is essential.
Meet at Bridlington Park and Ride.
