The village's 17th century heritage is still visible in some of the buildings, with an even greater number remaining from the villages heyday as a 19th century centre for hand loom weaving and lead mining. There are two pubs, a Post Office/village store, a Chinese take-away and a mainline railway station with links to Leeds, Skipton and the famous Settle to Carlisle Railway line. Nearby Skipton, known as "The Gateway to the Dales", has an ancient castle, a beautiful old parish church and a colourful market occupying the cobbled setts each side of the high street.
