A worthwhile stop off to get an insight into this small community.

 

This museum is an excellent resource to learn more about life in Swaledale with a focus on the lead mining industry, which over the years has contributed largely to the history, culture and way of life in the valley. Although the mines have closed, there is still much evidence of it, as you will have seen on today’s walk.
