Attraction Information:

Wheeldale is an enigmatic mile-long stretch of ancient road amid wild and beautiful moorland. The road is probably Roman but possibly later or earlier, and still has its hard core and drainage ditches.

Before You Go

Plan a Great Day Out

After exploring the road and taking in the spectacular views, visit Whitby Abbey, just seven miles away, and swap the mysteries of the moor for the Gothic splendour that inspired Bram Stoker's Dracula.
