Calverside Moor enclosure

Historical Environment Record No: MYD36580

Parish: Reeth, Fremington & Healaugh

OS Grid Reference: SE020999

Dale: Swaledale

Link to Archaeology Data Service:


Evidence for Neolithic occupation is hard to identify in the Yorkshire Dales. However, the settled lifestyle of these early farmers is likely to have required places to protect stock and a circular earth and stone-banked enclosure on Calverside in Swaledale may well be just such a place. It is as yet undated, but it is cut by a Bronze Age co-axial field boundary and so is a very good candidate for being Neolithic.
