We are open daily with COVID-secure measures in place. Book a cave tour!
We have no paid opportunities available at present.
We will reopen on 1st August. This will be the start of a phased reopening: our outdoor spaces and car park will be open, and our cafe will be available for food and drink to take away or enjoy in our outdoor seating areas. Our museum will also be open for ticketed entry. Cave tours will not be available immediately. Please see the website and social media for further updates, as they are available.
We are an independent charity and rely on income from visitors. Although we have received emergency funding, and many kind donations, this is still a very challenging time. If you are able to support us with the costs of reopening and looking after our site, you can donate here or you can donate £10 by texting CRESWELLCRAGS to 70085.
Our online shop is open again and all orders support us. There are now staff on site every day, but please be aware we are returning to work on a part time basis and enquiries might not be dealt with immediately. Call us on 01909 720378 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your support. We look forward to welcoming you back in August.
Hi I’m Angharad, Collections Officer at Creswell Crags. I have always had a keen interest in the physical landscape and nature, so a logical step was pursuing a BSc in Geography. During this time, I developed an interest in past environments, and so went on to do an MSc in Quaternary Science. I was particularly fascinated by mammals from the Pleistocene (the period from 2.6 million to 11.7 thousand years ago), and completed a dissertation on mammals found inside and outside of Church Hole at Creswell Crags. I then went on to a PhD, researching hyaenas that lived in Europe during the Pleistocene. During my PhD, I travelled to many museums, and became interested in the potential of working in museum collections, particularly those focussed upon palaeontology and archaeology.
Communications Manager at Creswell Crags
I am proud to be the Executive Director of Creswell Heritage Trust. I have worked in the sector since 1998 and have a proven success record in heritage management and project development. My achievements have been as a consequence of the hard work and creativity shown by the teams I have led, and this has been recognised with a variety of accolades including the prestigious European Heritage in Motion Award in 2015.
I am an Alumni Fellow and graduate of Nottingham Trent University with a Masters Degree in Heritage Studies. In 2017 I completed the Arts Council funded Museum Resilient Leadership Programme. In 2016 I was honoured to be invited as a Laureate at ‘Best in Heritage’ in Dubrovnik; the annual, global conference celebrating award-winning museum, heritage and conservation projects. As Director of Creswell Crags I am fortunate to be surrounded by great talent with genuine passion and ambition for this site and our aims.
Hi! I’m Jen, the Learning and Engagement Officer at the Crags. I’m in charge of the learning service that brings our Ice Age heritage to you, the visitors – whether that’s world-renowned archaeologists or children doing their Stone Age topic at school!
I’m a trained anthropologist (a professional “people-watcher”) with a fascination for the human story during the last Ice Age. My blog is going to be discussing up-to-the minute research on human origins and prehistoric archaeology from Britain and beyond. If you want to know more, you can reach me at Jennifer.Horseman@creswell-crags.org.uk.
Hi I’m Jim. I’m a trained naturalist with a background in Conservation. I really enjoy my work because the site is so varied and there is always something different to see. I hope you will enjoy my blog and perhaps even contribute to it. I will highlight what has been seen around the site during the last month.
I would like this blog to become yours as well with your input and your photos. I would welcome your input (reports of sightings and photos) via email (email@example.com). Alternatively, please feel free to take details of your sightings to the main reception desk during open hours, leaving your contact details.
