Who we are

We are a community-based charitable organisation working with local partners and the wider community in the remote, rural area of Upper Swaledale in the Yorkshire Dales.

We are funded through our own activities, donations and via partnerships with other charities, local authorities and the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority.

What we do

> Promote Upper Swaledale to visitors
> Explain our unique heritage, landscape and environment through exhibitions, events and guided walks
> Conserve and improve the local built environment
> Provide facilities for the community and visitors
> Support the fragile rural economy and encourage economic development

Our impact

We are two thirds of the way through our programme to restore three heritage buildings in Keld and return them to productive use.

We have opened a holiday cottage, Countryside & Heritage Centre, an events and activity space, a well-being garden and a community orchard, as well as organising a thriving events and activity programme.
