Foxup and Cosh

Fox Up

At the very top of the dale, Foxup means upstream with the foxes.

This is where the River Skirfare begins its journey through the dale to join the Wharfe. Until quite recently there were three farms in Foxup, only one remains. The hamlet is only a quarter of a mile from Halton Gill and they once shared both chapel and school.
The farm at Cosh is now once more inhabited after many years of lying empty.
