Board sheds light on Roman fort discovery
DETAILS of the discovery of a Roman fort have been unveiled on an information board.
The interpretation board reveals the discovery of Calstock Roman fort and the development of an historic settlement on Church Hill, to the north of Calstock village.
A ceremony was attended by 24 local people, many of whom took part in a community excavation in October 2011, organised by the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) as part of the Calstock Parish Heritage Project. It was supported by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund and run by the University of Exeter.
Hilary Bracegirdle, a committee member from the Heritage Lottery Fund, cut the ribbon, following short speeches by herself, Sam Barnes, the Tamar Valley AONB project officer, and Cllr Dorothy Kirk.
The group then returned to the Tamar Valley Centre to view an exhibition celebrating the project.
The exhibition 'Uncovering the Past' runs at the Tamar Valley Centre until January 31 from 11am to 4pm.
