Arncliffe Town Information




Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Yorkshire Dales...








Occupying a lonely position in the Dales, Arncliffe, or ‘eagle cliff’, sparked the imagination of Charles Kingsley, inspiring him to pen his famous fantasy ‘The Water Babies’.


The restored 12th century church stands by a bridge over the river Skirfare and nearby are the more remote villages of Litton and Halton Gill. The TV soap opera ‘Emmerdale’ was originally set here, taking its title from ‘Amerdale’, a previous name for Littondale.
