About this spot
This is the main pass between upper Wensleydale and Swaledale, made famous by the Tour de France in 2014. The pass is named after the huge holes in the ground which used to be used to store butter in a cool environment, but the steep sided valley has plenty more to offer besides the features which gave it its name.
