Timelines

Once completed, these pages will give a summary of what was taking place on The Chevin in the past. The journey starts millions of years ago with the Variscan Orogeny which gave The Chevin its famous steep slope, and follows the discovery of flint knives, scrapers and arrowheads that show evidence of the first humans passing through the area, before settling on its wooded slopes during the Iron Age. Since then there has been a history of people of taking valuable resources from The Chevin right up to modern day.
