Shaun Richardson, Ed Dennison Archaeological Services, ’Removed and Revealed: Some Effects of the July 2019 Flooding on Archaeology in Swaledale and Arkengarthdale’.

After a brief introduction regarding the frequency of historic flooding in Swaledale and Arkengarthdale, the lecture will deal primarily with the damage caused to lead mining landscapes by the July 2019 flooding and the subsequent recording of what was revealed. Following the course of the flood water, the lecture will commence with the isolated, upland landscapes of Blakethwaite Dams, Faggergill and Washy Green, and finish at Grinton smelt mill, where the results of the internal clearance work that immediately preceded the floods will also be examined.
Doors open 7pm for a 7.30pm start.
