Members of the public gathered at the Council Chambers in Pateley Bridge on Saturday to find out about the Upper Nidderdale Landscape Partnership’s ‘Our Farm Heritage’ project. Members of Iron Age Nidderdale (community archaeology group) and the Upper Nidderdale Landscape Partnership were on hand to talk about the many ways to get involved with the project, from surveying the fantastic landscape to carrying out research. Sally Wilson, Historic Nidderdale Project Officer gave a brief outline of the wider scheme, whilst her colleague, Louise Brown, and Bob Barker from Iron Age Nidderdale talked in more detail about the Our Farm Heritage project and the different ways to get involved.
Josh Southwell, Chair of Iron Age Nidderdale, said “It was fantastic. I was delighted that so many people came along to find out more, and hopefully some will be joining the team soon.” Sally Wilson added “This is a really exciting opportunity to find out more about this amazing landscape”.
Our Farm Heritage is one of a number of initiatives being carried out by the Heritage Lottery funded Upper Nidderdale Landscape Partnership Scheme, managed by Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
