Otley Chevin (Otley)
Black & White imageUndated. Postcard view of rocks on Otley Chevin. The word Chevin is believed to be derived from the Celtic word Kefn meaning a ridge. The steep escarpment overlooks the town of Otley; from the highest point of 925 feet above sea level it is possible on a clear day to see views as far as South Yorkshire. The lower wooded slopes rise to rocky outcrops of the type seen here. Quarrying has been a feature on the Chevin; stone for the foundations of the houses of Parliament was quarried here.
