• The ruined settlement of Lodge lies at the remote head of Nidderdale on the eastern fringes of the Yorkshire Dales. Before the creation of the great Nidderdale reservoirs, however, Lodge was a thriving hamlet on the early packhorse route to Coverdale and Wensleydale. Having developed from a medieval grange farm, Lodge represents over 700 years of upland history fossilised in crumbling stonework and turf-covered walls. The Lost Village of Lodge was a community excavation project undertaken in 2016 as part of the HLF-funded Upper Nidderdale Landscape Partnership. This volume tells the results of that work.

  • The Charting Chipeling project was a volunteer-led archaeological investigation of the grounds of Kiplin Hall in North Yorkshire. Through the course of 2014, local volunteers and schoolchildren undertook research, survey and excavation, piecing together the different stands of evidence. The story of the Charting Chipeling project is told in this volume, charting the growth of an estate from its origins as medieval grange, through the dynamic expansion of the 18th century, to its height as a Victorian country seat.

  • Among the high moors of Nidderdale in North Yorkshire, the remains of low stone banks and walls have hidden for millennia. These farmsteads and homes of our prehistoric and Romano- British ancestors can give us an insight into how people lived in times long removed from our own. They often go unrecognised and unrecorded, however, lost among the moss and bracken. This volume describes the results of work undertaken as a partnership between the Heritage Lottery-funded Upper Nidderdale Landscape Partnership and the Prehistoric Nidderdale project. Following extensive survey work, a team of volunteers excavated four Iron Age and Romano-British sites on the upland fringe. The results were surprising, informative and hugely valuable for our understanding of a period of Nidderdale’s past which is poorly understood.
