A popular Dales beauty spot set amid rolling hills and rugged moorland

This outstanding area of limestone pavements, upland hill farms and flower-rich hay meadows provides a marvellous setting for walking, cycling or just enjoying the great outdoors.

The National Nature Reserve is home to a unique community of rare plants and animals - the bird hide in particular is worth a visit.

Yorkshire Dales Appeal

Human intervention has shaped this natural landscape over centuries, with native species and habitats suffering as a result. We're working to recreate natural habitats for native species, and bring back traditional farming techniques.
