Iron-Age (Nidderdale) Community Archaeology Group

Meeting at Dacre or Pateley Bridge on most Tuesdays throughout the year for the past twleve 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 with 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.  Prehistory is now a part of the primary school syllabus at KS2 and an important element of the project is support this initiative. For further information please contact our Education Co-ordinator, Richard Langley at  richardlangley@live.co.uk or visit the project website - (http://prehistoric-nidderdale.org).
