This is something of an ‘uphill, down dale’ town, with homes and shops sitting atop steep slopes. The town has its own stocks as well as a 14th century peel tower built by the Broughton family. Once visitors have explored the many nooks and crannies here they might like to head for Ulpha (wolf hill) to experience a seriously exhilarating journey along mountain passes.
