A view of green fields and dry stone walls in the valley of Bransdale

Surrounded by dramatic open moorland, Bransdale is a quiet green oasis characterised by a patchwork of farmland and drystone walls. Footpaths and a bridleway cross the valley bringing in walkers and cyclists, while a single narrow road circles the dale. The National Trust team works closely with tenants to keep this secluded valley unspoilt.
