LiDAR data has kindly been provided by The Friends of Thynghowe and the Forestry Commission to this project.

The project will undertake a survey to provide information for the Nottinghamshire County Council Forest Rangers with information about archaeological remains in the Nature Reserve, hopefully providing essential information for future site management of this unique and beautiful site.

The survey will utilise the latest LiDAR data sets to map a ‘Holloway’ known in the past as ‘Nether Warsop Gate’, World War II features, and other archaeological remains.

The fieldwork will map all features to ‘Level one’ survey standards, and will then undertake more detailed recording of selected sites.

The information will be available on a map via this website, and a FULL written report will be completed for all parties involved.

This project is seen by all parties as a potential example of best practice for dynamic partnership working using the best expertise available in Sherwood Forest, dedicated community volunteers and high tech data sets.

For times and dates please join the mailing list - emails will be sent out shortly.
