Dowthwaite Head

14th October — Once the home of seven farming families Dowthwaite Head rests quietly by in the upper Aira Beck valley, seldom appreciated by walkers and almost never by the general tourist. Recently sold, its future hopefully secured to sustain the traditional pastoral setting and nurture the valley as a haven for wildlife.
