Buttertubs Pass

Buttertubs Pass is a spectacular high mountain road which leads across the moors from Muker and Thwaite in Swaledale to the Hamlet of Hardraw (famous for the waterfall of Hardraw Force) and Hawes in Wensledale.

The pass is so called because near its summit the road passes by a group of fluted Limestone Potholes which are known as the “Buttertubs”. The pot holes are between 20 and 80 feet deep, also some are said to be bottomless.
