Blubberhouses, in the Washburn Valley, Yorkshire Dales

The strangely named village of Blubberhouses is situated just off the A59 near Thruscross Reservoir in the Washburn Valley.

The name of the village probably derives from an Anglo Saxon description of "houses near a blubbering stream", which presumably refers to the River Washburn which passes by. There are not many houses here though, and the most distinctive feature is the village church of St. Andrew's (pictured above) at a crossroads with the A59.
