Bolsterstone Archaeology & Heritage Group

Bolsterstone Archaeology and Heritage Group is a community group dedicated to exploring all aspects of our past, through archaeology, history, or in whatever way we can. We are a small group of diverse backgrounds, with interests ranging far and wide – from flint tools and standing stones to cruck-framed buildings and millstones. Our main focus is on the heritage of the ancient village of Bolsterstone and Stocksbridge, and the surrounding moors, hills and valleys in South Yorkshire.

Our activities range from talks and workshops, and walks in the landscape to occasional fieldwork projects including fieldwalking and surveying – we’ve been successful in getting several grants for projects and the reports appear on our website. We also arrange visits to sites and excavations. We are always open to suggestions for things to do and encourage members to come forward with new ideas.

Regular meetings take place on the third Wednesday of most months at Christchurch meeting room in Stocksbridge at 7.30 pm, with occasional events in other venues, and we also host talks on Zoom. Why not join us for an evening? Engaging with the past along with like-minded people is a lot better than watching it on the telly! The entrance fee is £1 for members and £2 for non-members, including tea or coffee.
