THE NORTHERN DALES

TAN HILL     LEYBURN     HAWES     SWALEDALE     WENSLEYDALE     ARKENGARTHDALE     BISHOPDALE
The northern part of the Yorkshire Dales are dominated by Swaledale and Wensleydale.  Also nearby are Arkengarthdale and Bishopdale.  Wensleydale is a broad, majestic dale with two towns, Hawes and Leyburn and many farms.  In contrast Swaledale is much narrower with steep sides dotted with characteristic barns.  Bishopdale is similar in appearance to Welsneydale but more remote.  Arkengarthdale is one of the remotest dales running from Reeth up to Tan Hill and the highest pub in the British Isles.  There are some caves here but old lead mines provide the most interest to the underground explorer.
