Interesting Dales landscape with evidence of local quarrying and farming industries as a result of centuries of human use.
• Settle to Langcliffe via Warrendale Knotts and to Stainforth returning along the River Ribble
• A vaulted stonework cattle creep on one of the main east-west coach routes which enabled stock to pass under the road in search of water.
• Victoria & Jubilee Caves. Bronze, Stone Age & Roman items found here – long before we arrived!
• The Hoffman Kiln – the only complete remaining example in England, in use 1873-1939
