6. Sleddale, Kildale and Easby Moor
Wild and lonely Sleddale despite starting from close to the Commondale-Kildale road
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 Cleveland Hills viewed west from above Sleddale on a winter evening, nice looking at from your hut!
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.
