Upper Nidderdale Big Digs
Two community archaeological excavations will take place throughout the Landscape Partnership.
The first Big Dig was carried out in 2016 at Lodge, above Scar House Reservoir. The aim of the excavation was to find evidence of its Medieval past. The excavations were a great success and although most of the material excavated was 19th century or later in date, evidence of earlier occupation, including links to the Medieval, were uncovered.
The second is scheduled to take place in 2017. Keep checking back to find out more, or contact us through the ‘Get Involved’ page to register your interest.
