Castlebergh Crag is a large outcrop of limestone in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. A zigzag footpath leads to the summit of Castlebergh Crag, which offers a great view point over the town of Settle.
Castlebergh Crag Feasibility Study and Development Plan have now been completed. There was a public consultation view by clicking on the Castlebergh Masterplan.
The Town Council are now busy implementing the Masterplan and have received a grant from Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust Stories In Stone for £10k towards directional signage, hedgerow planting, overgrowth clearance of vegetation and interpretation panels.
The directional signage, clearance of overgrowth and hedgerow planting are now complete and the design of the 5 interpretation panels is now complete.
** The 5 interpretation panels have now arrived. They consist of a Geology, Fauna, Flora, Heritage and Panoramic Panel. These will be positioned at the Crag soon. Click on the links below, under "Appendix 6 to see an image of what they look like**
Further funding is required to complete the Masterplan and create an attractive space for locals and visitors to enjoy.
The Castlebergh Crag Steering group will reconvene and progress the next phase and seek funding.
Following another general public survey a large percentage of the Town support this project and the Town Council will work with all stakeholders.
