The Garsdale Valley extends downward to the west to Sedbergh. Garsdale Head is world-famous for its association with the Settle-Carlisle Railway line, now a heritage line. Built by the Midland Railway and opened in 1876. It was one of the greatest engineering challenges of the Victorian era with numerous bridges, tunnels and impressive viaducts taking the railway into the remote wild Pennines. KH
