Redesdale has a number of historic monuments or buildings at risk. This project will undertake repair and consolidation of two key historic sites: Ridsdale Ironworks and the Roman fort at High Rochester.
New interpretation at the sites, including promoted walking routes, will promote understanding of the sites within a wider landscape context. Community excavations and research projects linked to the sites will be carried out and work placements provided for students studying historic building conservation.
Further work to record archaeological sites will potentially identify other sites at risk and enable partners to secure appropriate management to avoid their disturbance or deterioration.
