Brimham Rocks

Brimham Rocks

Pateley Bridge

Brimham Rocks is a unique collection of eroded rock covering an area of about 50 acres, in the care of the National Trust.


Around 320 million years ago, a vast river cascaded sand and grit from granite mountains in northern Scotland and Norway, which formed a delta covering half of what we now call Yorkshire. Multiple layers of grit, sand and rock crystals built up to form the tough sandstone known as Millstone grit. It is exposed sections of this eroded sandstone that can be viewed today at Brimham Rocks.

There is a shop and toilets and the location is ideal for picnics followed by a ramble and climb among the rock formations. Brimham is located in Nidderdale, 4 miles east of Pateley Bridge off the B6265.

The peaceful setting of Pateley Bridge has provided inspiration for artists, writers and film and television productions. The winding high street is packed with small, specialist shops that cater for virtually any requirement. There are quality craft centres, charming pubs and country tearooms.


To experience a truly authentic taste of early Dales life, visit the Nidderdale Museum, it is packed with relics and artefacts chronicling a Yorkshire way of life of years gone by. 

A special plaque in Pateley Bridge High Street marks the start and finish of the Nidderdale Way, a circular route of some 53 miles that loops around each side of the Nidd Valley, taking in some of the most spectacular landscapes in the area. Renowned for its charm and floral beauty, Pateley Bridge is the perfect start and stopping point for walkers, with plenty of shops and places to eat.
