Places To Visit Near The Site

Walden

The dale of Walden is an offshoot of Wensleydale running south to north, leading up to the hamlets of Walden and Walden Head. It is a hidden gem of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

The name Walden, first recorded in 1270, comes from the Old English wala denu, meaning “valley of the Welshmen”. Walden Beck flows down the valley, over Cauldren Falls at West Burton onto Bishopdale Beck and the river Ure.

 

West Burton

 

West Burton is three quarters of a mile from the site and is considered to be one of the most beautiful villages in the Yorkshire Dales National Park with a large village green and an elevated location in a sheltered valley at the junction of Walden dale, Bishopdale and Wensleydale.

The village with its market cross, historic village stocks and its small but beautiful waterfall, known as Cauldron Falls, has delighted generations of visitors. The falls have been visited by William Wordsworth and John Ruskin. In the early nineteenth century during his North of England tour, J M W Turner painted the Cauldron Falls capturing the magic of the waterfall. The falls derived its name because of the beautiful plunge pool at the base and are most spectacular after heavy rain. The hills that surround the village form a spectacular setting giving a fantastic panoramic view of the surrounding dales and distant views of the Vale of York and North York Moors.

There is a pub in the village, the Fox and Hounds Inn, offering good food and refreshments. The village green offers a children’s play area and benches to sit and relax and watch the world go by. There are a number of amenities to visit e.g. tea room and gallery, butchers, post office, antiques shop, pottery and picture framers.

 

Yorkshire Dales National Park

The Yorkshire Dales spans westwards from the Vale of York, over the Pennines and into Cumbria. Known mainly as The Dales it has outstanding scenery, a diversity of wildlife habitats, a rich cultural heritage and peacefulness.

The Yorkshire Dales National Park, created in 1954 and one of fifteen National Parks in Britain, has over twenty main dales each with their own unique character and atmosphere. Most of the dales are named after their river or stream except Wensleydale which is named after the small village and former market town of Wensley.
