Artist's Description

Super Large View

Hubberholme is an old village in Upper Wharfedale in the Yorkshire Dales, North Yorkshire, England, at the point where Langstrothdale meets Wharfedale. It is quite secluded and the nearest village is Buckden.

The old Norman church is the resting place of the ashes of the writer and playwright J.B. Priestley. The old inn, The George, is opposite the Church. This is notable for the lit candle that sits on the bar to indicate the pub is open and serving. The tradition dates from distinctive auctions for agricultural land or grazing that were held in The George. The last bid to be received before the candle extinguished was the winner.

Hubberholme is the midpoint of a very popular walk from Buckden, via Hubberholme to Cray (lunch at the White Lion) and along the lower slopes of Buckden Pike back to Buckden – about 6 miles. Hubberholme also lies on the Dales Way in between Buckden and Yockenthwaite.
