Iron-Age (Nidderdale) Community Archaeology Group

(Archive Site)

Meeting at Dacre or Pateley Bridge on most Tuesdays throughout the year for the past twelve years our interests are in all aspects of archaeology in and around the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.


There has been a varied programme of fieldwork and research with many lectures and other public events and three funded projects including an earlier investigation of Nidderdale's historic iron working and two that are current in 2016. One of these is Our Farm Heritage which is a part of the Upper Nidderdale Landscape Partnership Scheme, the second being Prehistoric Nidderdale which is based at Dacre and which started formally on 15 January 2015.
