Guided Walking Holidays from the Settle Carlisle Railway The Settle to Carlisle railway is steeped in history and runs through 72 miles of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales and Cumbrian landscapes between these two northern market towns, a journey through some of the finest scenery in Britain. The route runs through 14 tunnels and over 20 viaducts including the iconic arches of the Ribblehead Viaduct a triumph of Victorian civil engineering. Exploring the foot of the Ribblehead Viaduct, you can just make out the rectangular foundations of the huts where the community of navvies and their families lived and died to construct this marvel a ghostly reminder of those who built our industrial heritage. Our three walks take in some of the scenic highlights and heritage along the route and will include Dent to Ribblehead, a walk taking in high hills, moors, valleys and great views. We start and finish at the stations to enjoy both the country and the train which runs though it. Settle itself is a small market town in Ribblesdale on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and sits amongst beautiful countryside at the foot of Castleberg Crag. The heart of the town is the 17th century market square with a thriving market on Tuesdays. The Old Naked Man caf in the square, dates back to 1663 and is one of the oldest cafs in the country.
