Settle
North Yorkshire
Settle is the gateway to the 2,000ft+ hills of the Three Peaks and also the railway that passes through the Yorkshire Dales and over the Ribblehead Viaduct to Carlisle (in the summer steam run trains). The town is overlooked by Castleberg crag and high above that (unseen from the town) Victoria Cave where animal bones dating back to the Ice Age have been found. In the town the shops are clustered around the market square, boarded to the top side by the former row of butchers shops - the Shambles. Another building worth visiting is The Folly, a huge building that now houses the Museum of North Craven Life. The town is almost joined to the village of Giggleswick - notable for the copper dome of the church of the public school (Giggleswick).
