Nestling in the beautiful, secluded Dentdale, Dent is a classic Yorkshire Dales village, full of cobbled streets, whitewashed cottages and little shops. Dent was the birthplace of Professor Adam Sedgewick, an eminent Victorian geologist, and a huge granite fountain in the village commemorates his life. The village has existed since Norman times, St. Andrew’s Church having a Norman doorway, and the village even today certainly has an ancient feel about it, especially the streets with the Sun Inn and the George and Dragon Hotel (see 'more photos') -- if you’re in the western part of the Yorkshire Dales, do make the effort to visit this little gem.

Directions: On a minor road in Dentdale, south-east of Sedbergh / north-east of Kirby Lonsdale.

Dentdale has the river Dee as its river (far from the only one in the UK). The village of Dent itself is one of the prettiest in the Yorkshire Dales National Park - although it is no longer in Yorkshire, having been allocated to Cumbria in the 1970s.

Dent village is situated at the foot of Whernside, the highest but by no means the most shapely peak in the National Park. However the dale is noted for prettiness rather than magnificence. That does not put it among my favourites but i admit that it is just fine for young families being introduced gently to walking.

A place near here well worth finding is the early Quaker Meeting House at Briggflats.
