The Ribblesdale Trails area has a unique character, but have you ever thought why? Much of it results from the rocks beneath your feet, the effects of ice and the way human activities have influenced the land since the ice melted. Millions of years of earth history have culminated in the landscape, plants animals, land use that make the area so attractive.
The two trails (that can be downloaded for FREE below) - Settle-Attermire and Stainforth-Winskill - provide an opportunity to explore the classic Carboniferous geology, and related cultural and industrial archeology, of the Settle-Stainforth area.
An App with Interactive versions of the Geotrails can be downloaded onto your smart phone or tablet. More details at Settle App
