You should have stopped somewhere near the weather station.
Ask your group to look at the town and landscape around them. Discuss what you can see. What do they think it looked like more than 4,000 years ago?
Now look down the slopes and read out loud to your group:
Buxton is a busy town. It grew up around the spring, now St Anne’s Well. Spring water has been important to people in this area for thousands of years.
For most of the stone age the only way people could find food was to gather wild plants and hunt animals. The natural springs in Buxton would have attracted animals such as deer – which would have attracted stone age hunters.
Tell the group they are going to imagine they are stone age hunters. Tell them to move stealthily down the slopes to stalk the animals drinking at the well. Tell them they need to stay behind you so as not to frighten away the deer, and there may be bears or wolves about!
Stalk down the slopes – sneak down the paths to the bottom of the hill by St Anne’s Well.
