The Friends say:-

The Hanging Grimston Community Archaeology Project was set up to investigate the earthwork remains of the deserted medieval village of Hanging Grimston, situated on the western edge of the Yorkshire Wolds, near Kirby Underdale. The general plan of the medieval village is known from the earthworks, but geophysical survey and to date three seasons of excavation are revealing much more detail of the site’s history. We now know that Hanging Grimston started life as a late Iron Age/Romano-British ‘ladder settlement’ and ended up as a Tudor mansion belonging to the Bourchier family of Beningborough Hall. The project is a joint venture of the High Wolds Heritage Group and the Scarborough Archaeological and Historical Society.
