Crabtree Ghyll is one of a number of woods that occupy the sides of the Wharfe valley interspersed with grazing/hay meadows, the upper edges of these woods often adjoin moorland. Crabtree Ghyll is part of a much larger area of woodland, as it’s name suggests
it occupies a steep sided valley which drains into the Wharfe.
Although it is known that the land was historically part of the Myddleton Estate, there are no known records of management
