Country estate to conduct largest ever archaeological survey on North Yorkshire stately home grounds

A COUNTRY estate is to undertake North Yorkshire’s largest ever archaeological survey of the grounds of a stately home in the hope of uncovering prehistoric or Roman finds.

Kiplin Hall, between Scorton and Northallerton, has received a Heritage Lottery Fund grant of £53,100 to conduct the survey within what remains of the site which covered more than 5,000 acres in the late 19th century.

The year-long project, called Charting Chipeling, the Archaeology of the Kiplin Estate, will be overseen by a professional archaeologist and is programmed to start immediately, with the major part of the work being completed by autumn 2014.
