Events - Hunter’s Sheffield Visits (Sheffield)

The Hunter Archaeological Society are organising three visits around Sheffield on Sunday 13th May 2012 to celebrate their centenary. An excursion showcases three current community archaeology projects, while two guided walks look at places connected with the antiquarian Joseph Hunter, from who the Society takes its name.

There are three guided walks and excursions to choose from:

1. Coach excursion to visit three very active community projects in the Sheffield area – Manor Lodge, Heeley City Farm and Wincobank. This will leave Paternoster Row outside the Showroom Cinema at 10am and return to the same point at 4 - 4.30pm. Lunch will be available at Heeley City Farm at a cost of £5 per head.

2. Guided walk around the non-conformist landscape of Sheffield led by Pat Wagner, leaving the junction of Glossop Road and Clarkehouse Road at 10am, lasting around 2 hours. This will visit the Wesleyan College, the Botanical Gardens and the General Cemetery.

3. Guided walk around Sheffield city centre circa 1800, looking at sites particularly connected with Joseph Hunter, led by Ruth Morgan. This will leave from in front of Sheffield Town Hall on Pinstone Street at 2pm and last around 2 hours.
