    This is a very positive step in the right direction. Paul and his band of wandering human curiosities could serve this project well.

    Well spotted!

    I think a bit of funding for Paul and the crew would be well spent!

    It does sound interesting! I'll call round & have a chat with Mr Edwards and see what he's got to say about it. About time some funding came this way, i.e. North! Very Happy Let's just hope the cash goes into the right places. We've recently found another extensive settlement arena (not recorded), plus some large cairns (not recorded) on these moors. There are also some very curious medieval remains up here (not recorded) which I've always wanted to know more about. If we could work as a team, it'd be good! Let's see how it unfolds in the coming months. Fingers crossed! Wink

    It aint gonna happen though Pete. They're after using volunteers to do the work, enabling others to do most of the donkey-work so to speak, with a small handful gerrin paid for other people's work. I know they'll be nicking material from TNA though - but whether they'll give credit about where they get the info from or not..... - usually committee-led groups like that don't tend to do so (but I hope I'm wrong).

    I think we're gonna set up our own website, The Rombald's Moor Project, which a small group of us will create from our own very limited finances. So I'd expect their massively-funded bunch of people to do summat that truly exceeds our limited abilities. They say they've no extra cash to pay anyone any further, so I'm expecting a superb series of texts and a truly excellent website in the near future based on the cash they've received. With the money at their disposal, they've no excuses for anything but a truly superb website. Let's see what emerges in the coming months.

    'The Rombald's Moor Project' - a worthy idea

    If we produce that book I suggested to you early in the year Paul - you will gain all the monies/resources you need

    Worth consideration I would think - think about it - offer always open

    Logging stones Ilkley Moor project

    Post  tricia on Wed Aug 10, 2011 1:14 pm

    I volunteered for this project early 2011
    I contacted Ilkley Moor friends who friendlily suggested I contact someone called Gavin which I did. I didn't get a phone reply after leaving a message, but undaunted I sent a message via email to Gavin, just to let him know I was still interested, asking if I could volunteer. Gavin was on hols it seemed and apologised for not replying to my phone message, he said he would email when he got back from his holidays.....that was May 31

    Still no message from Gavin


    I didn't know people working for the council got such long holidays?

    Mr Edwards again ey? So he was "on holiday" this time, instead of "on secondment" (his excuse to me), ignoring people he doesn't deem worthy. The guy's getting a track record for this sorta thing. I've been after going through a load of unpublished archaeological material in the Ilkley Museum, but he can't be arsed replying about that, nor helping out in anyway. There are some volunteers that he'll "use" for his own ends, but won't volunteer his help for anyone else though... Very poor... bad

    Awww!!! Please don't feel like that Tricia. You are more than welcome to venture the moors with the TNA mob. I wouldn't want to be part of something that was just for the 'elite' anyway. Here at the TNA we are the small 'Big Society'.
    If at any time you are venturing over towards the Keighley area, you are more than welcome to pop-in for a cuppa with Me & Paulus Very Happy

    ...But don't forget that you're now aware of other monuments on them moors that the elite club aren't. I bet they will be kicking themselves when they find out, so you can have the last laugh.

    Ermmm... Now I'm offended! how dare you be offended by height? lol! Being a short-arse miself, I find that it helps in locating things at ground level easier as mi eyes are closer to it.
