Story Maps

We're developing a series of Story Maps to help you discover the amazing heritage of the Peak District National Park. You can explore these while you are out and about, or from the comfort of an armchair. We’ll add more resources over time, so keep checking back.

3D models

Explore 3D models of some of the cultural heritage and archaeology of the national park.

Some of the structures featured in the 3D models below have been or will shortly be repaired thanks to funding from the Farming in Protected Landscapes scheme.

The best example of its kind! This was recorded by PDNPA volunteers and consolidated by Derbyshire Dry Walling Association in April 2023.

Mesolithic flint core

And something a little different, this mesolithic flint core was found in Chelmorton. Small flint flakes called microliths were chipped off this core to create what we think would have been a composite arrowhead, typical of the period.
