Saturday 2nd May 2020 1:30pm - 4:30pm

Location: car park dent

Admission: £6, U19 free

The dale has probably one of the remotest breweries in Britain, the highest railway station in Britain, as well as many links with the Quakers, connections with the slave trade and possibly with the Brontes. Dent Town itself was home to Terrible Knitters, the Dent Vampire and Adam Sedgwick. The scattered homesteads and hamlets of the dale owe much to the Vikings, who came here in the 10th century. Nowadays, the Dent Brewery, probably one of the remotest breweries in Britain, proves a great draw for real ale connoisseurs and could make a perfect end to your walk!

The route takes in a short stretch of cobbled street in town plus some steps, stiles and slight gradients. Please wear outdoor clothing appropriate for the weather and sturdy footwear with good grips.

Walk starts from Dent Car Park, LA10 5QL.

Dogs not allowed (assistance dogs welcome).

Places limited, booking advisable.

Thread Running Through by Textilia3

The landscape in which we live, meet and work is a northern landscape largely shaped by cloth. Distinctive weavers cottages line the canals and perch on hillsides, tall mill chimneys dominate the valleys. We meet in a grand and richly furnished manor house created by mill owners, exhibit and seek inspiration and materials at converted mills in Yorkshire, Lancashire and Cumbria. Some of us have mill workers in our ancestry, weaving in our memories and in our blood.
