Cautley Iron Age Settlement

Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork


This site consists of scattered stones and earthwork remains.

The setting of the site - at the foot of Cautley Spout falls - is most impressive.

There is a stone-edged track which leads from the settlement to the foot of the falls and stops there.
This suggests that the falls had special significance.

Park near the Cross Keys on the A683 east of Sedbergh.
(This is a temperance inn so don't expect a beer after your walk). Follow the footpath signposted Cautley Spout. Its about 3/4 mile to the settlement. The path is often boggy in places.
