Buttertubs Pass – Yorkshire Dales


The Buttertubs Pass is a high road in the Yorkshire Dales, England. The road winds its way north from Simonstone near Hawes towards Thwaite and Muker past 20 metre deep limestone potholes called the Buttertubs. It is said that the name of the potholes came from the times when farmers would rest there on their way to market. During hot weather they would lower the butter they had produced into the potholes to keep it cool.

On 5th July 2014 amazing scenes at the Buttertubs Pass were relayed round the world, as huge crowds gathered to watch world champion cyclists tackling the first stage of the Grand Departure of the Tour de France.
