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!
|Many ancient bones – from those of hippo to elephant – have been found here in local caves and more history can be found at The Folly, a plush residence built in 1679 by a wealthy merchant which now houses The Museum of North Craven Life.|
