Home of the Ice Age Hunter 

Creswell Crags is a limestone gorge honeycombed with caves and smaller fissures.

Stone tools and remains of animals found in the caves by archaeologists provide evidence for a fascinating story of life during the last Ice Age between 50,000 and 10,000 years ago.


LEADER funding was used towards a purpose-built stainless steel platform which gives access to view Britain's only known Rock Art. Discovered by archaeologists in 2003, the world famous engravings were carved into the walls and ceiling of the cave about 13,000 years ago by Britain's first Ice Age artists.
