Welcome to the Studfold Community Nature Project, an unique investigation attempting to record all the flora and fauna on a hill farm in Nidderdale, North Yorkshire whilst also analysing the affect of farming and industry on the site since pre-historic times. We have found evidence of human activity on site from probably Mesolithic times to the current day. This includes:
Flints.
No direct evidence yet but it is probable that these folk processed iron here.
Celtic fields, Romano-British farmstead.
Possible Building.
Owned by Byland Abbey, who exploited the lead and iron.
The area has been farmed by seventeen generations of the Walker family.
A polished limestone (Nidderdale Marble) used at Fountains Abbey may have been sourced from this area.
Exploited here both for land enrichment and for commercial reasons.
We have already discovered over 700 different species on this small hill farm in Upper Nidderdale including a number of regionally rare species.

Studfold Community Nature Project: Introduction

"This is a hill farm context with a truly exceptional level of historic/archaeological interest. The existence, across much of the area, of a system of ‘Celtic’ or presumably prehistoric fields is, on its own, justification for this claim. The existence within this system, of what appears to be a contemporary farmstead/hamlet further underlines the importance of the locality."

Please copy this template page, assign it a new project name, and then edit the copy.
If you are going to add a large amount of information to this site, it might be worth splitting the text between different pages, such as an introduction page, results, discussion etc. The easiest way to do this is to add a series of links just below your project title, as shown on this page. This is done by typing the following:
