The Green at Dufton

  • Description

    "Dufton was formerly a lead mining centre unnder the management of the London Lead Company who built cottages, a school, library and supplied piped water. It is typical of many villages in the Eden Valley with old houses spread around a large green. Wainwright in his 'Pennine Way Companion' describes it as "a typically charming Westmorland rural scene." Dufton is indeed on the Pennine Way and makes a useful stop after the long trek from Teesdale. The water fountain is in the foreground but in all the earlier photographs on Geograph there were no flowers planted in it. On a thoroughly damp and miserable Sunday in August, Dufton Pike can be seen behind the fountain." Photo by Marathon, 2018.
