Settle Town Information

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

The Settle-to-Carlisle railway line takes in some of the most picturesque scenery in Britain, cutting a swathe through the northwest Pennines via Ribblesdale, Mallerstang and the Eden Valley.

Thankfully it is run by a band of dedicated train buffs and while the market town of Settle is a fine place to walk it’s an even better place to ride!
