Swaledale

One of the best dales for walking with an extraordinary variety of scenery and industrial heritage including Gunnerside Gill. Swaledale is not as over touristed as some of the other areas presumably due to it's distance from large habitations. The Gunnerside Gill walk makes use of the excellent Northern Dalesman bus service. To Contents
