out and about

Malham Cove, Gordale Scar, Janet's Foss waterfalls and Malham Tarn nature reserve are all nearby. Kirkby Malham is just a mile from Lindon House. Bill Bryson, the well known author, lived here for several years and wrote of the beauty of the dale in "Notes From a small Island". Here you will also find a dales pub and a beautiful church, known as "The Cathedral of the Dales".

In the opposite direction is Gargrave, a great place for a beautiful walk. Completed in 1792, the Leeds/Liverpool Canal runs through the village and there are five individual locks nearby.

The ancient market towns of Settle, with its famous Settle - Carlisle railway, and Skipton, with its castle and canal, are 6 miles and 8 miles respectively.

Also within a few miles is Bolton Abbey, with its romantic ruins of the 12th century Augustinian priory, and the estate contains over 30 miles of footpaths, through spectacular riverside, wooded and open moorland scenery.

A slightly longer journey may be made to the hauntingly lovely Fountains Abbey, near Ripon, one of the most oustanding Cistercian monastic ruins in existance; York, with its majestic minster, Jorvik Viking Centre, and numerous other attractions of international repute; Harrogate; Herriot and the Bronte country - the list is endless.

On the west coast are Blackpool and Morecambe, with their outstanding facilities. There are steam railways at Haworth, Embsay, Carnforth and Haverthwaite, in The Lake District - itself an area of majestic beauty and only 1.5 hours drive from Lindon House.
