Some Views of Otley

Otley has a 13th century bridge, still with medieval ribbed arches which spans the Wharfe. The mainly 13th century church has older foundations and later additions and crosses dated from about 780ad. The town has attractive 18th century houses and cottages, modern buildings and all set in beautiful countryside.
