Because the land at Bradgate has never been subject to modern farming methods, traces of its 15,000 year history of human occupation still remain and are now yielding up their secrets to archaeologists.

Join a Bradgate Park Ranger for a journey through the Park’s extensive and varied archaeology – from the Stone Age to the Second World War.

A highlight of the walk will be the Late Upper Paleolithic site at Little Matlock, one of only two of its type ever discovered in the UK.
