The village lies at the foot of the moor between Swaledale and Wensleydale.
The whole village is built on water; the beck rises on the moor, goes under-
ground and then comes out at the top end of the village. A mill race is
channelled off so that there are two becks flowing through - one goes along
the top between the houses and the green in the picture, then under the
road at the end and down to where there used to be a mill.
