The tiny hamlet of Satron ('saetr' - summer pasture) is encountered on the B6270 approximately half a mile west of Gunnerside's New Bridge.

Edmund Cooper in Men of Swaledale mentions that ' George Clarkson held a tenement [here] in 1547 along with Thos. Clarkson and James Clarkson, Junior.'

Joseph Clarkson (1690-1786), an early Satron entrepreneur, kept an account book of his transactions which provides a valuable insight into the costs of living in Swaledale in the 18th century.
