The Westmorland Dales is bounded on all sides by major through-routes – the Lune gap; the Eden valley and east to west though Ravenstonedale to Kirkby Stephen. For thousands of years, people and their animals have used these ways through the landscape and they have all left their mark. This project aims to explore the history of these routes and of the people who travelled them and to share their stories with the wider public.
