Poulton is a small farming hamlet just outside Chester with a fascinating archaeological story to tell. Over the past twenty years, archaeologists from the Poulton Research Project have been uncovering the remains of over 10,000 years of human activity.  Kevin Cootes, Consultant Archaeologist and Site Director will show us around the site.

The lunch will be taking place from 12.30pm at the Grosvenor Arms. See the pre-order menue below and choose 2 out of 3 courses.

For the site visit afterwards, please meet at Brookside farm at 2.15, going through the village, across the junction, past the red post box and turning right to park there, on the left-hand side away from the building.

There is good access and parking at the Grosvenor Pulford. The site visit is not suitable for anyone with impaired mobility as the ground is uneven and the site is accessed on foot over field paths, approx ¾ mile. Toilet facilities on site are also difficult to access though adequate for those physically able.
