The Stainmore Gap
The Stainmore Gap is a wide break in the Pennine Hills which lies between the
Yorkshire Dales National Park
(to the south) and
(to the north).
The A66 runs through the gap, which as a relatively low lying route through the northern Pennines has served as an important communication channel between
in the west and the
Vale of Mowbray
in the east.
Places in and around the Stainmore Gap include the Stainmore Forest,
(which overlooks the south eastern end of the gap).
