Images of ..... Dentdale

From the viewpoint at the top of Flinter Gill, above the village of Dent, looking over to the hills. They have wonderful names like Yarlside, Calf, Calders, Arant Haw and Helms Knott.

The Occupation Road, an old drover's road across the fells.

A typical drystone wall

Another view from Occupation Road

The pretty farmhouse of Bower Bank in the hamlet of Gawthrop. Right next door is a converted barn, now an 'eco' holiday let. It used to be the recording studio of the comedian, folk singer and writer Mike Harding.
