How to get there; either by car, or by train from Settle at 07.30, needing a change of platforms en route, from Giggleswick at 07.35 or from Skipton at 09.04 (arriving at 09.41) to Bradford Forster Square.

  • Sunday 26th May,  Settle Stories are screening The Wanted 18 at 3pm in the Joinery, Settle and donations on the day go towards the ReSETTLEment project. The film is an astonishing true story: the Israeli army’s pursuit of 18 cows, whose independent milk production on a Palestinian collective farm was declared “a threat to the national security of the state of Israel.”
