Wherever you are in Nidderdale AONB you are surrounded by a special historic environment, the result of thousands of years of human activity. This may be evidenced through rock art and Iron Age settlements or it may be through the traditional farm buildings and 19th century workers' cottages.
Everyone can play a role in conserving the built historic environment for future generations. For property owners and estate managers there are skills training and funding opportunities. For others there is the opportunity to listen, read and learn through events and publications, or be a heritage volunteer, surveying sites and learning skills.
