Things to do and see


Alfred Wainwright describes his visit to Dent in his book ‘A Pennine Journey’ as Dent is not of this world, it’s a fairy tale, a place of cobbles, jutting gables, over hanging roofs & quaint alleyways. You can watch the recent BBC documentry by Stuart Maconie on the following link towards the end of the article:
