Buckden lies on the Dales Way, at the northern end of Wharfedale nestling under the impressive bulk of Buckden Pike. With stunning Dales scenery, it was the ideal spot to watch the race which came through the heart of the village before heading up to Cray and over the Kidstones Pass - the first King of the Mountains climb of the Tour.

The Village
