An archaeological historic landscape survey was undertaken of The National Trust’s, North Yorkshire coastal property landholdings. The 14 individual areas total 6.7km² in extent, located along the coastal zone from Saltburn in the north (NZ 6697 2154) down to Newbiggin Cliff in the south (TA 1075 8232). The programme of work was intended to provide base-line information and mapping of the archaeological resource within each of the landholdings, to propose preliminary management recommendations, and to identify potential future archaeological work that may be required in these areas.
The work entailed a desk-based survey to examine pertinent documentary information and previous investigations at the sites, followed by a walkover survey to monitor the condition of known sites, and to identify and record previously undiscovered sites. The desk-based element was undertaken during November and December 2006, and the field survey was undertaken in early January 2007.
The survey was undertaken at 14 individual study areas, which were of variable size and character. Extending from north-west to south-east, these comprised Saltburn, Warsett Hill, Loftus, Staithes, Port Mulgrave, Runswick Bay, Saltwick Nab, Robin Hood’s Bay, Boggle Hole, Ravenscar, Staintondale, Hayburn Wyke, Cayton Bay, and Newbiggin Cliff.
