River Rye Project

Went along to Chopgate the other night . A meeting organised by Tom Stevenson from the North York Moors National Park . Between 2017-2019 there is a large grant available so anyone who has any interesting facts to tell about it should get in touch with Tom.  We are in this area as the Little Holbeck which runs at the bottom of our garden into the Holbeck, which feeds into the River Rye, is all part of it . I have told Tom to get in touch with my dad has we had an old brick works on our land as it shows on old maps and some other intersted facts due to the land being farmed by the Monks of Byland Abbey centuries ago. There was some interesting discussion and it will be good for history to get it all logged beofre it is too late . Amy Thomas did a sterling job taking noted
