Penhill, Wensleydale, in the Yorkshire Dales

Penhill is a distinctively shaped hill overlooking the market town of Leyburn in Wensleydale in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales.

Penhill is sometimes referred to as "Penhill Hill", and since "Pen" is an ancient word for "hill" Penhill Hill could be considered a hill which has been named three times over!

Ancient tales tell of a giant living here, and "Penhill Crags" are also mentioned in the doggerel which describes the legend of Old Bartle..
