At 1,000 feet above sea level, isolated Alston lays claim to be the highest market town in England. Set on a slope, it nestles in the higher reaches of the River South Tyne. The area evolved from the former industry of lead mining and many buildings hark back to the 1800s. Since then it has earned a reputation for serving up Cumberland Mustard and locally produced cheese. It stands at the start of England’s highest narrow gauge railway, the South Tynedale Railway.
