Grime's Graves to open a second pit to the public

A challenging descent by ladder, winch and harness into a prehistoric underworld will open to the public for the first time this year, allowing exploration of shafts and galleries cut deep under Norfolk heathland more than 4,000 years ago.

The extraordinary surface landscape of Grime’s Graves, pockmarked with hundreds of shallow depressions, puzzled people for many centuries until they were identified about 150 years ago as neolithic flint mines.

This is too exciting. Even a subterranea-fearing coward like myself will be elbowing people out the way to get to the front of the queue. Rhiannon Posted by Rhiannon
