Landscape Character Assessment

Anyone who knows Casterton will be delighted by a new tool that has just become available (November 2020) from Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority


Casterton is part of the stunning, evocative landscape of the Yorkshire Dales which are designated as a national park in recognition of their exceptional scenic beauty. The sweeping moorland summits, carved by intimate dales and dramatic limestone features are traced with patterns of stone walls, barns, settlement and industry that reveal a legacy of land use dating back through the centuries. This is a landscape of national importance, which forms part of our collective identity.


A detailed analysis of the Dales Landscape has now been made available by the  Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority. It contains sections on all the principal landscapes, with charts showing their geology, history , principle sights/sites, and a wealth of photographs. There is a specific section on the Lune Valley and an Annexe with much useful information about, and photographs of, Casterton.


There is much to be enjoyed in the website which can be found by visiting

and scrolling through the index to find the section you want.
