Bordley Township Project

Bordley Township Project is a community archaeology project based in the Yorkshire Dales,working in a relatively remote area on the watershed between Airedale and Wharfedale. With a history dating back to the Stone Age. the Township’s surviving features include enclosures, stone circles, drovers roads and packhorse routes, monastic remains, medieval buildings, and lead and coal mining. The archaeology, history and landscape are currently being investigated, thanks to a generous Heritage Lottery Fund grant. Group members (mainly volunteers) research historical documents, record buildings and other features in the landscape, and learn new skills such as the professional surveying of features.
