 Record Name Teesdale to Swaledale route
 Record Description This is only speculation and it is based on the simple observation that you can travel between Teeesdale and Swaledale using the stone-marked summits (each visible from its neighbour) at How Tallon (NZ 057074), Frankinshaw How (NZ 061064) and Holgate How (NZ 068048). From Holgate How the route can go into the Marske Beck valley or across to Cock How and then down to the Swale river. This route is lent further credence by the map on page 3 of Prehistoric Rock Art of County Durham, Swaledale and Wensleydale by Stan Beckinsall and Tim Laurie which shows a significant amount of rock art close to this route. This book also includes detailed information about the stones at each of the summits - How Tallon (page 57), Frankinshaw How (page 66), Holgate How (page 92) and Cock How (page 97-100). There is then the possibility of travelling to Wensleydale using standing stones, but I have not yet checked the alignment nor the visibility of each from the other.
