This free guided walk is sponsored by the WEA (Workers Educational Association) and CHATS (Friends of Clarence, Holmfield and Thornes Parks). It explores the history and archaeology of the motte and bailey castle at Lowe Hill, Wakefield (UK). We will consider how recent archaeological work has contributed to our understanding of the site and discuss the problems of managing large earthwork archaeological sites such as this.

The walk is not difficult but is over grassy parkland. Appropriate outdoor clothing and footwear should be worn.
