The Lime and Ice Project seeks answers about 16th century mill

Who built the 16th century water mill recently discovered in North York Moors National Park? Archaeologists are looking for the answer among official documents after unearthing the complex, complete with millstones and the outlines of watercourses.

"Scant documentary evidence does show, however, that a mill was sold by a William Wyldon of Yearsley to the Fairfaxes of Gilling in 1560," said volunteer Geoff Snowden. The Lime and Ice Project, which undertakes to document the history of the North York Moors National Park, is funded by a UKĀ£500,000 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund and will run until 2013.
