Yockenthwaite

Information on Yockenthwaite, Yorkshire

Yockenthwaite is a tiny hamlet of a couple of farm houses in the Langstrothdale valley where a stone bridge crosses the River Wharfe.The earliest evidence of human habitation in the area dates  back to the Bronze Age- a stone circle or ring cairn can be seen beside the river  about 1/3 mile upstream from the bridge. The stones are generally thought to be all that remains of a pre-historic burial mound. The circle can be found on the north bank of the river, by the Dales Way a reached via a rough track from the bridge at Yockenthwaite.
