Whitfield Scar, Helm, Wensleydale
Whitfield Scar, Helm, Wensleydale
The photograph is taken from the footpath crossing Helm Pasture and shows the Scar (550m) with Whitfield Gill in the middle ground. The land is rough and stony and is used for sheep.
It is worth noting the drystone wall precariously climbing up the scar side. It was erected in 1817 under the terms of the Askrigg Enclosure Acts which separated one owner's 'allotment' from that of another's grazing allocation.
