Transportation & Industrial Revolution brought prosperity to Stavely and the Kentmere Valley, Bobbin turning was the primary industry till 1850, its demise, unlike other industries among them were the manufacturing of motorcycles, diatomite & photographic paper which continued to thrive. A café and small complex now exist on the site of an old wood mill.

Stavely is the perfect place to start when exploring The Kentmere Valley & specifically Garburn Pass, the valley is situated on the east side of Stavely.
