The Iron-Age (Nidderdale) Project was a hugely successful project,

funded from 2008 and 2013 by a Heritage Lottery Fund grant of £41,000

to explore the amazing (and up 'til now, often hidden) remains

of iron workings in this glorious dale.

 

Deep in the Dale, there are a few rough fields which are full of enough archaeology to keep even the most ardent archaeologist happy for decades. Here, we spent many a happy day,

whatever the weather, surrounded by the most beautiful countryside.

I was honoured to be one of its founders and co-leaders.

 

We explored a Bronze Age burial mound, Iron Age homes and metal workings, medieval monks’ masterpieces of industry and resources, 17th century buildings and any number of mysteries.

And quite a lot of mud.
