The pretty and ancient Wensleydale village of East Witton is situated in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, between Jervaulx Abbey and Middleham, the area famous for its race horse training. A traditional old village made up of stone-built cottages and farmhouses, with a wonderful village green running the entire length of the main high street. To the west of the village lies some of the most beautiful countryside in the Dales with the hidden gem of Coverdale, one of the most beautiful, but relatively one of the more isolated, of the Yorkshire Dales. Coverham at the eastern end of the dale is dominated by Middleham Moor, Penhill and Flamstone Pin. The village boasts an award winning pub, The Blue Lion, a gourmet pub awarded The Good Pub Guide Inn of the Year 2014. The, village which is catalogued in the Doomsday Book, was originally sited along what is now Lowthorpe (which leads to the old church (St Martin in the Field) acquired a town charter in 1307, and a market. During the Black Death, the market was moved to Ulshaw Bridge and died out shortly thereafter. The market was never reinstated. The Earl of Ailesbury, owner of the Jervaux estate, rebuilt most of East Witton in the early 19th century, the houses and gardens in the same places as they were in 1627 according to an old estate map. Jervaulx Abbey was founded in 1156 and was once a great Cistercian Monastery. The Abbey now stands as a charming and atmospheric ruin, open all year round for visitors with lovely tea rooms.
