Barden Tower

Barden Tower, Wharfedale

Barden Tower is a fine ruined hunting lodge on the edge of the road leading up Lower Wharfedale between Bolton Abbey and Burnsall in the Yorkshire Dales.

Nearby attractions include Barden Bridge (where a road forks over the River Wharfe to Appletreewick) and the treacherous channel of river known as "The Strid" (actually part of the Bolton Abbey estate).

[N.B. Barden lends its name to the so called "Barden Triangle" an area of supposed supernatural activity which includes the magical Elbolton Hill near Thorpe and the nightmarish ravine that is Trollers Gill near Appletreewick.]

Above Barden, and to the west is Barden Moor and Barden Fell.
