YD 11 - Beautiful and a bit remote Oct 31, 2010
Although the numbers of visitors to Swaledale has increased, it is nothing like as well visited as Wensleydale or Wharfedale. It lie on the other side of a long ridge from Wensleydale and both sides of Swaledale are littered with remains of lead mining.

This is the closest challenger to Wharfedale for the title of my favourite dale. I love its steep sides, its small but delightful waterfalls and its characteristic barns.

The northernmost of the Dales, Arkengarthdale, flowing from near England's highest inn at Tan Hill joins Sawledale near Reeth.

The delightful town of Richmond and nearby easby Abbey lie just outside the NP. Richmond has a funtioning Georgian theatre.
