Austwick is a village and civil parish in the Craven district of North Yorkshire, England, about 5mi north-west of Settle. The village is on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.Before local government reorganisation in 1974, Austwick parish was within Settle Rural District which was in the County of the West Riding of Yorkshire.According to the Austwick & Lawkland Tithe Map of 21 October 1851 the parish has an area of 8201acre of which around a quarter is uncut moorland. The highest point within the parish is at Lord's Seat on Simon Fell at 2079ft.HistoryThe area around Austwick has been inhabited by humans for over 4,000 years. Archaeological finds in and around the village include prehistoric burial places, a large Bronze Age settlement, and even an Iron Age settlement. The area surrounding Austwick has many ancient remains including extensive walls and structures constructed of slate, limestone, and sandstone.At one time, Austwick, Clapham, Lawkland, and Newby were independent manors with their own lord that together formed the larger parish of Clapham. In the Domesday Book, which was a survey of England conducted in 1086, Austwick was the head of 12 manors spread along a northern route.
