Kirkby Stephen Town Information

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

Although this village is in Cumbria it lies at the foot of Mallerstang, partly in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Local people call their impressive Church of St Stephen the ‘Cathedral of the Dales’ and one of its most notable possessions is the Loki Stone, a 10th century cross shaft carved with images of a Norse God - one of only two examples of its kind in Europe.
