The town of Bentham is an urban area that is larger than a village but smaller than a city. Unless Bentham grows to a size where it is elevated to a higher administrative status it is effectively a parish but to differentiate between the two at the turn of the last century towns were granted the right to allow their elected representatives call themselves a "Town Council" and to, from their number, elect a Mayor. Other than that they have the same legal rights and responsibilities as a Parish Council.

 To provide a safe area for  market traders a market place was set up in Cleveland Square with access from Main Street through the ginnel by Asian Spice.

Every Wednesday from early morning until mid afternoon there are regular stalls for fruit and vegetables, fish, cakes and biscuits and jewellery repairs watches, batteries etc.

A stall with plants, flowers and eggs  is on the Main Street near the Black Bull every Wednesday. And on Wednesdays and Saturday mornings there is still a fruit and veg stall outside the Coach House.

St Margaret's Church is situated atop the hill off Station road. Climbing the hill not only brings one to the beautiful architecture of the church but also gives us a fantastic view of the surrounding area.

Bentham is a traditional Yorkshire market town rather than a tourist centre. Access is easy from the M6 and A65. It is an ideal centre for exploration of lovely scenery and a starting point for many fine walks, cycle rides, pony treks and excursions by car.

Just to the north lies the Yorkshire Dales National Park with the three peaks of Ingleborough, Whernside and Penyghent visible from many places in and around the town.

The Forest of Bowland, designated an area of outstanding natural beauty, stretches away to the south while in a north-westerly direction, less than hour's drive away, is Lake Windermere and all the natural beauty of the Lake District.
