Cleatop Park Wood & Cleatop Wood
"Atmospheric, enchanting, ancient woodland set on a west-facing slope scattered with large boulders deposited in the last ice age"
Cleatop Park Wood and Cleatop Wood (incorporating Stubbings Wood) are neighbouring woodlands approximately 2 miles south of Settle.
The woods are full of bluebells in the springtime and there are many other wildflowers on display throughout the year.
There is evidence of possible Bronze Age burial cairn in the woods.
On a clear day there are great views of the two of the Yorkshire Three Peaks (Pen-y-ghent and Ingleborough), Long Preston Wetlands and, far in the distance, the Lake District mountains.
There is no parking nearby so the woods can only be accessed on foot from Settle.
