  • O.S. 1:25,000, Explorer Map OL2, Yorkshire Dales, Southern & Western areas, Grid. Ref. 633813.
  • Most maps available on the internet, as well as some sat–systems, are post–code based. In rural locations post–codes can cover large areas, and you may end up being directed to a neighbouring farm.
  • The Google map below has been corrected to get over this problem – as has the link to the O.S.–based Street Map.
