Prehistoric Nidderdale Project

We have successfully completed our Heritage Lottery funded Prehistoric Nidderdale Project and its been signed off  by the HLF. We couldn’t have done it with HLF money so we are very grateful to them for supporting us. See other parts of this website for what we found.


What we are doing March

This month we expect to restarting visiting farms to see what interesting features there are and maybe record some of the old barns.

Use the contact page to tell us if you are interested.

Don’t forget in April with are excavating at Studfold – see previous blog.

Our next event



We will be going back to the  probable Romano-British settlement at Studfold next Easter as part of the Our Farm Heritage Project

This is where we found the hearth (expect to have the dating results back around Christmas time), some Burnish ware ( and a lovely pavement.

 Dates of the dig are 2nd April( Easter Monday) to 10th April inclusive.

 After the last dig we felt further investigation would be good to

–  find out  where the pavement leads to and its extent?

– what the main round house is like and its relationship to the  stone pile?

– find out more about the entrance to the site

-find out more about the smaller round house and its relationship to the back bank.

 We will need to plan how much we can do in the time.

If you want to  stay there then don’t forget there is camping and more- see

 If you are interested in joining us on any or all  of the days during this week, please contact me on morrisbob ‘at’ for further details.
