Thanks and acknowledgements

We would like to thank our funders, the Heritage Lottery Fund, and our matchfunding partners for their support.

This project owes a great deal to the many volunteers from Nidderdale AONB and Leeds who have contributed their time and expertise to our events and research projects.

We are grateful to the ongoing support of the Friends of Nidderdale AONB, including Heather Garnett, Chair of the Project Steering Group.

Our key partners at the University of York and Leeds City Council have made vital contributions to this project. The University of York have directed the ongoing archaeological research project at Breary Banks, Colsterdale. This has included annual training excavations for first year Archaeology undergraduates. We are also grateful to the University staff for sharing their expertise at events and training sessions. Students from the Digital Heritage course also worked with our volunteer groups to develop research blogs, record their findings and create an audio heritage trail of Colsterdale Camp.

Leeds City Council's Library and Information services, Museums and Galleries and Parks and Countryside departments have also supported the project in various ways. In particular, we have worked in partnership with Leeds Museums and Galleries to manage the Leeds Pals Volunteer Researchers and produce an online learning resource about the Leeds Pals.

Many local heritage groups have participated in our project and we are grateful for their support, including the Pott and Agill Study Group, the Friends of Lawnswood Cemetery and the Making of Mashamshire.

We are grateful to all members of the project Steering Group for giving their time throughout the project, supporting our events and providing advice and guidance.

Our thanks to the Swinton Estate and tenant farmers for their support, particularly relating to events in Colsterdale, access improvements and the production of new interpretation for Breary Banks.

We would like to thank all the schools from Nidderdale AONB and Leeds that have taken part in our project, including those that attended workshops or open days at Breary Banks, and who took part in our Short Story Competition.

We are grateful to the many individuals who have provided training sessions, supported research visits for our volunteers, shared their research and given talks or tours.

Colleagues within Nidderdale AONB, Harrogate Borough Council and North Yorkshire County Council have also supported the project in various ways.

Finally we should thank all those members of the public and local communities for supporting our events and following our project.

Thank you!
