Depending on whether you're travelling east or west, Keld is either the first or last village in Swaledale -- well, it's a hamlet rather than a village I suppose as it doesn't have even a shop, never mind a pub -- but it's a superb base for walking in this area with quite a few waterfalls (or as they're called in these parts 'Force' - derived from the Norse word 'fors' or 'foss'). You'll need an Ordnance Survey map of this area to show you the paths to the various falls, but if you enjoy walking you'll certainly like Keld and its environs.

Please see 'more photos' for pics of the falls.

Directions: Juts off the B6270 at the west end of Swaledale
