Pateley Bridge and Nidderdale's History

Hundreds of years of human activity have left a landscape strewn with curiosities; sighting towers used to direct the pipes carrying water from the reservoirs to the nearest towns and cities, kilns, mines and quarries once the backbone of local industry, follies built as status symbols by local landowners.

Though still standing many of these have now been reclaimed by nature and become part of the landscape they once dominated.

Getting active around Pateley Bridge and Nidderdale

For a quick burning-off of energy, a large park and recreation ground is just over the river from the town with plenty more than just the traditional swings and slide to entertain the young.

You will find the perfect place to stay in the range of Pateley Bridge accommodation, both big and small, as well as holiday cottages and B&Bs in the surrounding villages for those seeking a quieter break.

The high street in Pateley Bridge is well known for its local produce, novelties and arts and crafts.

You’ll find a perfect reminder of your visit or a tasty treat to take a little of the Nidderdale spirit home with you.

Fine Yorkshire ales and delicious local cooking are the standard in the pubs and inns that line the valley, and you will get a warm welcome at any time of year, either basking in the beer garden or soaking up the heat from a roaring fire.

Base your visit around Pateley Bridge and enjoy the natural beauty of the Yorkshire Dales every day of your visit.
