Hawes A beautiful market town of Upper Wensleydale. It once enjoyed an important position on the eighteenth century Lancaster-Richmond Turnpike road, a memento of which is a coachman's bell high on the wall of one of the town's inns. Modern traffic has replaced the coach-and-four and packhorse trains that once clip-clopped along its narrow streets. Market day (Tuesdays) in Hawes is as busy as ever.
