Overview

Creswell Crags is a world famous archaeological site, a limestone gorge with caves and lake, home to Britain's only known Ice Age Cave Art. This art is thought to date to about 13,000 years ago and provide a glimpse into the rich culture and fascinating life of our distant relatives. Over 100 years of archaeological work at the site has unearthed stone tools and remains of animals providing evidence for a fascinating story of life during the last Ice Age.

Cresswell is fairly local to us, so been several times. Walk around the lake, spy into the caves (you can go in on a cave tour for a fee.) Lovely cafe and visitor centre. Worth a visit.More
