Sleights Town Information

The village of Sleights inhabits hillsides on either side of the River Esk and was the birthplace of ‘Flint Jack’, one of Yorkshire’s great characters. In the mid-19th century he created fake antiques which fooled even the real experts. From here country lanes lead to intriguing places such as Ugglebarnby, Littlebeck and Eskdaleside.
