Prehistoric Features at Studfold Farm

The hamlet of Blayshaw is located within Studfold Farm and it is known that there are the remains of monastic iron smelting there (see the Iron-Age (Nidderdale) website) but in addition a quern stone has been found. Also  there is evidence of prehistoric settlement, a Romano-British farmstead/village, a Bronze Age enclosure with round houses, previously never recorded and another potential Bronze Age Enclosure. All are worthy of further investigation.
