Arkengarthdale and Langthwaite Village have been heavily featured in the TV series 'All Creatures Great and Small', which ran from the late 1970’s until 1990. The new church in Langthwaite was built in 1818, replacing the one in Arkle Town whose foundations were undermined by Arkle Beck. However, all that remains of the original church are the tombstones. The building of the new church established Langthwaite as the principal village in Arkengarthdale and it remains one of the most beautiful villages in the Dales.
The CB Inn has, throughout history, been an integral part of the local community. The local outdoor game of Quoits is played from April to September and is a feature at all local festivals, village greens and participating Inns and Pubs.
