Stepping Stones

Along the stepping stones in the area known locally as 'Little Switzerland', where the river Hodder winds its way along the wooded valley.

In the hamlet of Whitewell you will find a church, an Inn and a few cottages which grace this very attractive spot.

Cave dwellers lived here around 1000 BC and Middle Bronze Age relics were found in the 'Fairy Holes' cave a few years ago. Roman remains have also been found in the area and a long straight roman road over the valley is still partly in use. The manor, now known as the "The Inn at Whitewell", used to be the location for a thriving market, which was held on the forecourt.
