Just a few miles over the scar is the Eden valley.Historically it was part of the county of Westmorland but is now in the Eden District of Cumbria.Orton ScarOrton Scar is renowned for its beautiful limestone pavements and also the views. From its summit you can see Blackpool tower on a clear day, the A66 over Stainmore, the Lake District, the Howgill Fells and even down or up the Eden Valley and its source at Mallerstang also you can see as far as the southern uplands. The road leading to Appleby (B6260) leads over Orton Scar and the surrounding moorland was used in the movie version of Anne Brontë's novel The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. There are two becks flowing through the village which join into a river for about 20 metres then split up again both leading to Bybeck bridge at the parish boundary next to Tebay.
