The Ribblehead viaduct in North Yorkshire, is regarded as the most impressive structure on the Settle-Carlisle Railway. It dates from the 1870s when hundreds of railway builders ("navvies") lost their lives building the line, from a combination of accidents, fights, and smallpox outbreaks. In particular, building the Ribblehead (then Batty Moss) viaduct, with its 24 massive stone arches 104 feet above the moor, caused such loss of life that the railway paid for an expansion of the local graveyard.

Barbondale runs from the Lune Valley near Kirkby Lonsdale along to Dent Dale in the Yorkshire Dales. Formerly the south-west end of Barbondale was in east Cumbria while the north-east part of Barbondale was in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It is all now within the National Park, which extends into Cumbria. The stream is known as Barkin Beck, and flows south-west to join the River Lune.

Wensleydale lies in the Yorkshire Dales National Park – one of only a few valleys in the Dales not currently named after its principal river, the Ure. The village name 'Wensley' is a derivative of Woden's ley, or meadow of the pagan god Woden, while the valley itself takes its name from the village which was formerly a market town. The valley is famous for its cheese, with the main commercial production at Hawes.

The beautiful Yorkshire Dales are renowned for their dry stone walls and stone cottages and barns, which are scattered across the countryside. Swaledale runs broadly from west to east, from the high moors on the Cumbria–Yorkshire boundary at the watershed of Northern England to the market town of Richmond, where the dale meets the lowlands.

There are numerous stone barns and cottages scattered around the dales. Some lived in and some now derelict. This is at the edge of Swaledale, between Muker and Gunnerside. The dale runs broadly from west to east, from the high moors on the Cumbria–Yorkshire boundary at the watershed of Northern England to the market town of Richmond, where the dale meets the lowlands.
