A superb 1 mile grassy ridge linking the summit of Buckden Pike with the Polish cross is the highlight of a mountain that is the jewel of Wharfedale. There are old lead mines on its west facing slopes.
At the head of Wharfedale is Yockenthwaite Moor, part of a long sweeping and boggy ridge. The approach from Raydale in the north is the most enjoyable.
A long grassy ridge separating Wharfedale from lovely Littondale. The highest point is a mile from the expected summit and trig point.
