Knucklas Castle Community Land Project

During April 2009 CPAT provided support for an exciting new community-led heritage initiative, the Knucklas Community Land Project. Enterprising locals have bought an area of land upon which stands the 12th century Knucklas Castle and underlying which is probably a prehistoric fort.

CPAT staff provided background support for fieldwalking and metal detecting on fields below the castle hill over a weekend. In a separate event CPAT organised and ran a recording day for a small group of locals who wanted to learn how to record their parish church and churchyard.

This enthusiastic community intend to continue researching the archaeology and history of their village and CPAT look forward to further involvement too! For more information about the Knucklas Community Land Project visit their website here.
