Severals Prehistoric Village, Smardale, Coast to Coast
The Coast to Coast path bisects these villages, passing between Severals and Intake, as it crosses over the summit of Begin Hill en route to Smardale. The photograph below, taken from the Coast to Coast path on the descent of Begin Hill shows the Smardale Vllley below, and Scandel Beck wending away in the distance towards its source beyond Ravenstonedale. On the right of the photograph is the upper part of Severals, which was built on the south side of the hill as it descends to what is now the dismantled railway, just above Severals Gill and Smardale Beck.
