North York Moors archaeology work unearths water mill

Archaeologists have unearthed what they believe are the remains of a 16th Century water mill on the North York Moors National Park.

Volunteers made the discovery on Yearsley Moor, near Helmsley.

They found the remains of a complex of buildings, including a large millstone, plus the outlines of watercourses that may have served the mill.
