More about this scene


Caption for Wickersley, Royds Moor C1955: A royd is a northern name for an assart, a practice going back to medieval times when the population of a hamlet cleared land, usually sufficient to make one or two fields, for crops. They would sow oats in spring which were harvested late, followed by a winter crop of rye. Royds Moor is named after a royd cleared for crops probably around the mid 12th century.
