Citroen 2CV's in Langstrothdale
Running westwards from Buckden near the head of Upper Wharfedale is Langstrothdale, one of the least inhabited of the Yorkshire Dales. The River Wharfe starts it's journey flowing through Langstrothdale but Wharfedale itself does not start until the river meets Cray Gill neat Buckden.
Above Hubberholme is Yockenthwaite where there are a number of challenging caves and potholes nearby.BACK
After Yockenthwaite Langstrothdale breaks out into open countryside with the road following the fledgling River Wharfe, crossing it about halfway up. Near the head of Langstrothdale the road leaves the river, climbing the side of the valley through Oughtershaw and over the summit from where it is possible to see Heysham Nuclear Power Station and the Irish Sea many miles away before the road descends into Hawes in Wensleydale.
