Impressions of the Past – new Community Arts Project around Pontesbury

Friday October 28th, 2016 | Stephanie

Iron Age hill forts are found on many of the prominent hilltops and spurs in the Stiperstones & Corndon area.  These include the impressive remains on the summit of Earl’s Hill and the lesser known lower Hill Camp on Pontesford Hill.  With community support, Friends of Pontesford Hill, together with Shropshire Wildlife Trust and the Stiperstones & Corndon Landscape Partnership Scheme are raising awareness and celebrating this impressive Iron Age heritage.

‘Impressions of the Past’ is a community arts project to create pieces of art to tell the Iron Age story at Earl’s Hill and other nearby sites. The project starts this autumn with a walk and creative writing workshop on Saturday 19th November, led by County Archaeologist, Hugh Hannaford, and poet Jean Atkin.  If you can’t make this event, there’s still lots of opportunities to get involved.  Walks and talks, clay and creativity are all part of the mix.  Look out for workshop and walk dates in the new year on our events webpage For more information, please contact Community Officer, Joe Penfold on 01938 561741 or email info@stiperstonesandcorndon.co.uk.
