Since 2004 we have investigated sites at Dacre, Darley, Blayshaw (near Lofthouse), Blubberhouses, Kirkby Overblow, Spofforth, Wath (near Pateley Bridge) and Gouthwaite, all of which have produced abundant evidence of historic iron smelting activity. For more information on this subject visit the website for our Nidderdale Iron Project- http://nidderdale-iron.co.uk


While carrying out this work, evidence of many aspects of prehistoric activity has been revealed and this work is being continued in our new project, Prehistoric Nidderdale. Further information is available on the group's new website - https://ironagenidderdale.wordpress.com/
