Ancient trackway

This ancient cobbled trackway runs from Reeth Bridge, through High Fremington to join what is now the Reels Head road to Richmond. It was probably the route east out of Swaledale for centuries and perhaps millennia since just beyond here is the small Iron Age enclosed settlement of Ewelop Hill. The local tradition that this was Roman road is not as far-fetched as some might think!
