Creswell Crags and Crags Pond
Creswell Crags and Crags Pond
One of several limestone gorges in this area, Creswell Crags is one of the oldest known inhabited places in Britain. There are numerous caves on each side of the valley which were occupied by Neanderthal Man 40,000 years ago. The earliest remains of modern man known in Britain have also been discovered there, dating back 13,000 years to the last Ice Age. In more recent times, Creswell was once part of the Welbeck estate, and the Crags Pond was created by the Duke of Portland as a duck shooting lake.
