Wirksworth Archaeological Society

WRP Logo

The purpose of the Society is to carry out archaeological work within and around Wirksworth in the Peak District.

 

Although we are principally interested in the Roman and Mercian periods, and have a specific project (The Wirksworth Roman Project), we also cover any archaeological issues which relate to Wirksworth and its immediate hinterland, whatever the period concerned.

 

Individual assessments and updates are listed under "Work / Finds" which deals with current work in progress. If you are viewing using a mobile phone, you will need to switch to 'standard format' in order to see the "Work / Finds" page correctly.
