Swaledale Keld Head, Swaledale

Thwaite is a small village at the foot of the Buttertubs Pass near the head of Swaledale in the Yorkshire Dales.

Strictly speaking the village itself is not in Swaledale itself, but it does lie in the tributary valley of Straw Beck (which is also known as Thwaitedale - pictured above) and is only separated from the main valley by the intervening mass of Kisdon Hill.

From here a small road leads over the moors to Tan Hill, as does the Pennine Way, which crosses the Coast to Coast Walk in this vicinity also.
