The remote Sleddale Farm

 

The remoteness of Sleddale Farm is well observed from the track from Percy Cross Rigg.

 

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. Picture from 2007 (I think?)

More pictures of the iron age huts, photos taken in April 2018

 

 

 

 

The Cleveland Hills viewed west from above Sleddale on a winter evening

The Cleveland Hills viewed west from the road on Percy Cross Rigg above Sleddale on a winter evening, nice looking at from your hut!

 

On the track at the end of the Percy Cross Rigg road is a track which heads for Hutton to the west of Guisborough and on it you find the ruins of the command bunker of the 'Starfish' Decoy Site on the track from Percy Cross Rigg to Hutton Moor - the idea was to light fires to deceive German bombers that they were the intended target of Teesside.

6b. Kildale Church

Some ancient gravestones and font.

 

Some Anglo-Saxon fragments?

 

Medieval heads (or Victorian replacement/additions) on the south wall of the nave of the church.

 


6c. Easby Moor

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.
