Dent in Cumbria was our next destination, only a short journey south of Sedbergh.
We had no great hopes for photography to add to our image library as the weather was certainly not on our side: very overcast and cloudy. The windscreen wipers were working overtime on our way which was via a tortuous narrow winding road.
Despite our reservations we were to be very pleasantly surprised and found Dent to be an utterly charming and very photogenic village! regardless of the adverse weather conditions,

Parking was no problem and our first attraction was Dent Village Heritage Centre and Museum. Our primary thought being ‘lets find some shelter get out of this awful rain’ but once inside we found it to be extremely interesting with displays and exhibits demonstrating all aspects of the village daily life in times gone by.
Did you know Dentdale was an early 19th century powerhouse of hand knitting? learn all about The Terrible Knitters of Dent plus much more. Certainly well worth a visit and not to be missed, an absolute wealth of local history.

Suitably refreshed we continued our exploration of the village finding photo opportunities around every corner, cobbled streets, quaint cottages and in the centre of Dent the historical 12th century church of St Andrew.
