At the Dent Museum and Heritage Centre you will learn about the working lives and social customs of the Dales folk who inhabited this beautiful area in times past.

The centre was designed and built entirely by local labour; they beautifully converted and extended the former  filling-station for Dent town.

Most of the exhibits are of genuine Dale’s provenance, a large number of them being taken from the collection of Jim and Margaret Taylor of High Laning Farm, the Centre’s founders, who have spent many years rescuing and refurbishing many of the traditional artefacts on display.

You will learn aboaut:

  • Life on the Land
  • The Knitters of Dent
  • Dent Marble
  • The SSettle-Carlisle Railway
  • Adam Sedgwick
  • Miles Mason
  • Slavery, and
  • The Dent Vampire!
