Welcome
Kisdon Gorge
and
Swinnergill
above
Keld,
are excellent areas for bird watching.
Species that may be seen include: red grouse, skylark, lapwing, curlew, wheatear, raven and peregrine falcon.
Using a car as a portable “hide”, the moorland roads around
Reeth
will enable you to observe at close- quarters golden plover, lapwing curlew and redshank as well as the ubiquitous grouse.
Watch the birdie....
On-farm cheese-making was once widespread in the Dales and in the Middle Ages monks made cheese from both ewe’s and cow’s milk.
Although perhaps not so well-known as Wensleydale, the creamy, tangy Swaledale cheese is now once more being produced commercially, although in relatively small quantities.  
Say Cheese....
