At first glance High Dike on the High Way path in Mallerstang looks like any ruined barn. However it isn’t. In 1825 the main turnpike road (now the B6259) in the valley was constructed but before then this track high above the valley floor was the main track linking Hawes and Kirkby Stephen.

High Dike was one on the inns on the route offering a bed to weary travellers. And great views across the valley towards distant Whernside and Ingleborough.
