Guided tour by Marcus Jecock, (Archaeological Investigator, Historic England )

Location: Mount Pleasant Farm, Hanging Grimston, Kirby Underdale YO41 1QZ. Satnav: make sure you enter the correct address, as there are other farms of the same name in the general area...

Parking:here! If there are more cars than space, park off the track to the left.

Visitors will need to be equipped for rough terrain walking, and potentially-inclement weather! The hillside is fairly steep, and the going is therefore quite strenuous....
