Four thousand years of archaeological history is set to be investigated after a research project was awarded £10,000 by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).

The grant has been given to Boroughbridge and District Historical Society to focus on a small area west of the A1 motorway examining Neolithic finds, ancient river crossings, Roman remains, 16th century properties on the Newby Hall Estate and the remnants of a Victorian brickworks.

The Dog Kennel Lane project, in the parishes of Newby-with-Mulwith and Langthorpe, near Boroughbridge, has its boundaries defined by the River Ure and the A1M. The study group will work under the guidance of professional archaeologist Kevin Cale.
