The hamlet of Arncliffe feels like it's tucked away in its own special time zone, safely distanced from the troubles of the world.
The houses around the green mainly date from the 17th and 18th century, some of them quite grand. The village pump still stands on the green. There are plenty of date stones and other features to spot, such as the details on barn doors, porches with carved lintels, and doorways to peek through into pretty gardens beyond.
The construction of the barns and the stone built houses clustered around the village green make it feel even more self-sufficient, a bit like a Swiss mountain village that's secure in its knowledge that every householder has animal fodder ready for the winter, and a warm home in which to hibernate.
There's a medieval ridge and furrow field system nearby, and the mill pond probably date back to medieval times.
Many Yorkshire Dales villages have historic buildings and a lovely setting, but Arncliffe feels even more harmonious and welcoming.
