The main bits are owned by the Sir Henry Lawson Tancred, not sure the bit this lass is on about but Sir Henry has just about everything within half a mile or more of Aldbrough.
I have a very posh friend who is also a friend of Sir Henry but even she couldn’t get me a go on his bit.

It sounds like good land Bob Henry land or not if someone went about it in the right way they should be able to secure it for NRH,

Anyhow i have no interest in digs its there for the taking if someone can be bothered

They have land at Minskip.
Just looked her up on Facebook and my wife knows of them as she’s from Langthorpe originally.

A bit more digging, their farm is actually located in the village of Minskip.
Not sure of the land but guessing it’s the bit I’ve ringed in red.
I actually have a permission not to far from there and there’s a Roman Fort (scheduled monument) not too far away that I’ve stuck a blue box around.

I've been on the large oblong field with Johns Digs he was lucky leave with his life :confused:
Is that John of N.E.W.S.?
Nice bloke but his land has been done to death.
I’ve been on a couple near Ripon, usual story, it produces Roman, Saxon and Medieval but the truth is it produces bugger all nowadays.

Thats him Bob, was on one of his lost permissions today lol! If you are running a dig its best to stay to the end, I like John wish I had his address book especially the Saxon ones he lost.

Well, regardless of who does, or does not like digs or regardless who thinks Natalie Cundall deserves a big thank you are not, unless someone takes time out to contact her you wont be going on a dig on her land :D

As we all know land is hard to get while your sat thinking about it or waiting for someone to spoon feed you the land will have been taken :p

Well spotted Lee. I'm sure there will be plenty of groups interested but they will probably be put off unless they charge £15-£20 per person as they like to pocket cash for there holidays :D
Good luck if anyone takes it forward.
