Yorkshire Dales Market Towns


Situated in the Yorkshire Dales National Park at the junction of Swaledale and Arkengarthdale, Reeth is a picturesque market town with a history stretching back to Saxon times.

Reeth: venue for the Swaledale Festival

Noted in the Doomsday Book following the Norman Conquest, Reeth went on to become a local centre of the Lead industry and the traditional craft of hand knitting.

With its name originating from old English and meaning "the place by the stream", Reeth has served the needs of its surrounding farming communities over many centuries and now holds a popular market every Friday.

The focal point of this popular tourist stop-off is the triangular green which hosts many local events.

The town has tearooms and craft shops to tempt visitors, is a centre for walking over the hills or down by the river and in August hosts the annual Reeth Show.
