Pictures of Settle

a Historic Market Town in the county of North Yorkshire

About Settle

Your Business Here! - Sponsor our Settle pages, click here.
A wonderful market town in the Yorkshire Dales. Settle is the starting point for the famous Settle to Carlisle Railway; one of Britain's most spectacular and scenic railways which runs through remote regions of the Yorkshire Dales and North Pennines. Well worth a trip is the journey from Settle to Appleby.

The town stands beside the largest outcrop of limestone in Britain - in a region of scars, cliffs, potholes and caves. Check out the footpath at the rear of the town which leads up to Castleberg crag - providing a wonderful veiw of the town in its dale.
