Between 2007 and 2011 members of the Ingleborough Archaeology Group undertook a survey of the archaeological features on the north-west flanks of Ingleborough.

All of the recorded features have been entered onto a spreadsheet and a number of plans have been drawn.

Please note that throughout the spreadsheet no distinction is made between 'sandstone' and 'gritstone'. In all cases the generic term 'sandstone ' is used. Also in those areas where sandstone has been worked only a selection of the worked stones have been recorded.

There are links from the spreadsheet to the relevant photos
The spreadsheet was last updated 23/1/12.

Essays covering many different aspects of the survey have been written by members of the group and may be viewed by clicking on the titles below:
