There will be an opportunity to find out more about one of Settle’s
famous sons, by undertaking the Tot Lord Trail. This guided walk

East African Famine Appeal. For further information contact  015242

which once stood have now been demolished. The things old residents of
Settle might know about.

This is a wonderful footpath – to Janet’s Foss- most of you

gives you an extra reason to walk along it.

Half the photosynthesis in the world is due to Algae.

So half the oxygen we breathe could come from algae.
It would be helpful if you could let me know if you are coming
