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.
