The historic Market town of Settle
The market town of Settle is a short train ride from Dent
Station. Taking you through beautiful countryside and over the famous
Ribblehead Viaduct, the journey lasts about 27 minutes.
Settle's market is held weekly on Tuesdays in Victoria Hall in the town centre. The Square is surrounded by local businesses, most of which are family-owned, with some offering items for sale unique to the Settle area. Why not visit The Naked Man cafe, believed to be the oldest cafe in the country?
Surrounded by picturesque countryside, there are many walks to explore, including a steep climb up the tall limestone rock of Castleberg to view the town from above. Or take a longer walk through the landscape to Victoria Cave where prehistoric remains have been found, the cave is a scheduled monument.
This historic town has many interesting buildings and houses one of which is the Folly. A 17th century Grade I listed building on the main street. It houses the Museum of North Craven Life and hosts exhibitions during the open season. There are also permanent displays, including the Settle to Carlisle Railway, Robert (Mouseman) Thompson furniture and local history, as well as a café and gift shop on the ground floor.
