Saltash U3A has recently been awarded £33,700 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), for an exciting project called Reading the Hurlers.  The community geo-archaeological project focuses on the early Bronze Age site of the Hurlers stone circles, near the village of Minions, Bodmin Moor.  As part of the project, volunteers will undertake a geological survey and produce a profile of the area’s granite resources which will aim to identify the sources of granite which the standing stones of the Hurlers were quarried from.
