Buckden.

It is a little village in the heart of the Dales and is next to the river Wharfe.

It as only one pub in the village. I have stayed in it a few times. www.thebuckinnbuckden.co.uk

It doe's have 2 shops.in the village and it can get very busy on a sunny weekend. But in the evening it will be quite.

As for walks Where do I begin? Flat river walks to Starbottom and Kettlewell.. High level walks up Buckden pike with a visit to the Polish crash memorial a must.

A drive on the backroad to Hawes via Oughtershaw would also be on the top of my must do list.

You need to clarify if you mean Buckden Cambridgeshire or Buckden North Yorkshire as this thread is showing in the Cambridgeshire section.

I do believe enneirda is asking about the Yorkshire one as they have been asking questions on the Dales forums. I think they have posted on the wrong forum by mistake.

But then I could be wrong.

Thank you Ian

Sorry, I had noticed the other Buckden crop up on my internet searching but didn't think to add the North Yorkshire bit.

Thanks again for the description and the walks.

No threads on the OTHER Buckden forum yet enneirda, perhaps you could start one!!

Otherwise, this might help, if you have not found it for yourself already, that is!!

Enneirda - I don't know if you have seen the film Calendar Girls but this would definitely help if you are trying to form a picture of the area before you visit. It's also a very good film!

Poetic licence was used in the locations - the WI in reality was in Rylstone, but a lot of the filming was done a few miles away in various Wharfedale villages.

Kettlewell appears as the fictional village of Knapeley, and Burnsall (another place you could look at as a good place to stay) was used as the location of the Kilnsey show (although Kilnsey does exist).
