Walkers may enjoy hill fort
Bookmark and Share
Those who like to go walking on the North York Moors may enjoy a visit to a Bronze Age hill fort, where the national park authority has arranged for experts to show visitors around an ongoing archaeological dig.

The ancient fort at Boltby Scar near Sutton Bank has had two previous excavations, but records of these do not remain and the structure was levelled by a bulldozer in 1961.

However, a fresh dig is seeking to produce new information about the past and for those who enjoy putting on their walking boots and visiting the national park, it may offer an insight into the history and heritage of the area and its landscape.

Open days will be held on May 29th and 30th to help people discover more.

There are a number of hillforts around the Pennines, with other good examples including Mam Tor near Castleton and Edale in the Peak District.
