The ruined settlement of Lodge lies at the remote head of Nidderdale on the eastern fringes of the Yorkshire Dales. Before the creation of the great Nidderdale reservoirs, however, Lodge was a thriving hamlet on the early packhorse route to Coverdale and Wensleydale. Lodge represents over 700 years of upland history fossilized in crumbling stonework and turf-covered walls. The story of a community excavation project undertaken in 2016 as part of the HLF-funded Upper Nidderdale Landscape Partnership.
