preserved remains of five prehistoric iron age hut circles above Sleddale

The best preserved remains of five prehistoric iron age hut circles above Sleddale. A plaque near the iron age hut circles pays tribute to their excavator Roland S. Close (1908-1978). The five huts probably date from the 1st century AD and are the only ones to have been found in North-East Yorkshire.

The Captain Cook Memorial

The area where stone was quarried and cut up below Easby Moor - an incline ran down in the Great Ayton direction - one of many 'bits' of industrial archaeology in the area.
