Last year was all about very, very old structures in Turkey, and slightly less older structures in Peru. Since April I’ve been much closer to home looking at conservation and management of Industrial Archaeology on the North York Moors.
I couldn’t resist this pile of bricks, stones and other things on Institute Row in Grosmont.
You can find out more about the development of the project on the North York Moors Conservation Blog (and some more of the great work across the National Park by my splendid colleagues).
There will be much more to follow, including (I hope) research into the Navvy Camps (which were soddies – turf built buildings) associated with the builders of the Victorian railway systems that were crucial for the extraction of Ironstone from the North York Moors.
