Arkengarthdale Feb 21, 2017
Running north from Reeth and Swaledale, Arkengarthdale used to be part of Arkengarth Forest -- many years ago the few small hamlets along the way used to be inhabited by lead miners -- now they're hill farmers. It's quite a wild area, deserted mainly -- it's main claim to fame now is probably the fact that the village of Langthwaite was seen in the opening title shots of the popular TV series of James Herriot's 'All Creatures Great and Small' -- but if you're in Reeth, it's nice to take a drive north to have a look at this remote dale.

Directions: Take the minor road north from Reeth, it's signed Arkengarthdale
