Lancaster and District Heritage Group

In 2014 Oxford Archaeology North ( OAN ) carried out a geophysical survey on an area of land between the castle and the quay for Beyond The Castle ( BTC ).

The results of the survey were made available to the public through a series of talks, pop up shops and guided walks.

It was through one of these talks that a community group originally known as “The Armchair Archaeologists “ was formed.

In late 2014 the group which had started to grow became formalised and changed its name to the Lancaster and District Heritage Group ( LDHG ).

Today they are a growing group with with more than 35 members and a large following on our Facebook page.
