Discover Reeth

A natural amphitheatre, surrounded by spectacular scenery and stunning panoramas, Reeth was championed by Ella Pontefract, one of the Yorkshire Dale's most esteemed authors as "a little country in itself." This quirky Saxon settlement had a huge voice in the domestic economy and is best known for its extensive contribution to England's lead industry - (in its heyday Reeth was producing over 10% of the country's lead), as a result it is regularly referred to as the capital of Swaledale.
