So what have we been up to over the winter? The snow and biting cold weather has kept us away, but that doesn't mean we haven't been busy.
Alan and Jane have been working on the botanical survey, cataloguing and editing a large archive of photographs and flora lists for the botanical survey, while the field survey team have been similarly tying up loose ends and preparing materials for the report.
We are now drafting the official report which will go out to the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority and others this year, and discussing the best way to provide a more general readership with the project's findings. The team have had a couple of meetings to get the report writing under way.
Alan and Jane have been out today measuring up the habitat zones and checking them for descriptors to include in the report; Alan has also been taking additional photographs for the archaeological record. And Alison has re-visited the site to check on some of her ideas regarding the walls and boundaries.
