Grinton Village, Yorkshire Dales National Park, Swaledale, North Yorkshire: Grinton is a small village in lower Swaledale which is the most northerly main dale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Grinton Youth Hostel (YHA) is above the centre of the village and an excellent base to explore Swaledale. Down in the village the medieval Mother Church of St Andrew is well worth a visit ('The Cathedral of the Dale'). The name Grinton means 'green pasture' as is evident either side of the lovely River Swale.

The Bridge Inn in Grinton serves good food and beer and is across the road from a fine old house and the medieval church, which unlike the pub doesn't have a sheep on the roof!
