About Wakefield

In prehistoric times, the area around what is now Wakefield would have been a constantly changing landscape. Hot and cold climates gave Wakefield its bed of sandstone rock, the coal measures and the river Calder. Various stone, flint and bronze implements have been found, indicating human occupation – axes, knives, arrow heads etc. Many of these have been unearthed in the Lee Moor and Stanley areas, as well as Lupset.
