This week we have been revisiting an earlier study in Lloyds Coppice
which we did for the Severn Gorge Countryside Trust
. In fact this is only the latest in a series of projects in this area, which have included various surveys and the excavation of the engine house. The Lloyds is an area of historic mining activity, and the SGCT are about to embark on a programme of amenity improvements.
This photo shows the line of an ancient plateway
, along which the new footpath will run. A leaflet about Lloyds Coppice
is downloadable from the SGCT
website, which features information from previous Ironbridge Archaeology projects on the site.
