The origins of the spring and well in Churwell woods are hoped to be discovered at an archaeological dig next weekend.

Organised by Churwell Environmental Volunteers, the dig, in Clark Spring Woods, will be held on Saturday September 13 and Sunday September 14 from 10am-4pm on both days.

People are asked to meet at the field centre on Westwood Side.

The dig will be led by local archaeologist Dave Weldrake who aims to discover the origins of the spring and well from which Clark Spring Woods takes its name.

Mr Weldrake says he is confident the dig will confirm that the spring/well is of significant archaeological value.

Recently other similar types of sources of springs have been located at Fulneck, Pudsey with interesting discoveries. The dig is open to anyone who is interested and wellies are advisable.
