The origins of the spring and well in Churwell woods re hoped to be discovered this weekend.

Organised by Churwell Environmental Volunteers, an archaeological dig, in Clark Spring Woods, will beheld this Saturday and Sunday from 10am-4pm on both days.

People are asked to meet at the Field Centre on Westwood Side at 9.30am and register for the dig on Saturday morning. 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 the spring/well is of significant archaeological value.

The volunteers will act as labourers, marshalling the area and security, moving soil, making the area safe, maintaining the footpath through out the dig and transporting equipment to and from the site.
