Filming 'The Settlement'

The documentary we are filming at present is to be called 'The Settlement'.  It will be a documentary about the history of settlement in the Grassington area of the Yorkshire Dales from the last ice age until the present time.


We will be looking at who came to settle here, where they came from, why they came and what they did when they got here.  Starting with a brief look at the local geology we will move onto the different peoples that made this place their home.  So it will be Hunter-Gatherers, Celts, Romans, Angles, Saxons, Vikings and Normans.  It will be farmers, miners, textile workers, quarry men, railway workers, merchants and retirees.
