It lies beside the famous Settle-Carlisle railway line and is overshadowed by the so-called Three Peaks of Whernside, Pen-y Ghent and Ingleborough while huge potholes such as Hunt Pot and Hull Pot lurk menacingly beneath the landscape.

It’s no wonder that geologists are drawn here to study local rock formations.
