The bustling village of Staveley nestles at the foot of the secluded Kentmere Valley. Its history shaped by two rivers: the fast-flowing river Kent and the smaller river Gowan. An area of rolling countryside interspersed with valleys, woods, hedges and drystone walls.
Wild, open moorlands dominate the uplands, descending through tree-clothed valley sides to low-lying pasture land on the valley bottoms.
