In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Arncliffe like this:

ARNCLIFFE, a township and a subdistrict in the district of Settle, and a parish chiefly in that district but partly also in the district of Skipton, W. R. Yorkshire. The township lies on the river Wharfe, 10 miles NE of Settle r. station, and has a post office under Skipton. Acres, 5,790. Real property, £1,884. ...

Pop., 174. Houses, 36. The subdistrict comprises also the townships of Hawkeswick, Litton, and Halton-Gill. Acres, 20,797. Pop., 405. Houses, 87. The parish includes also the township of Buckden. Acres, 34,021. Real property, £12,099. Pop., 740. Houses, 159. The property is considerably divided. Much of the land is hilly and moorish; but many spots, near the streams, are low and pleasant.

The church is old, and has been carefully restored. The p. curacies of Halton-Gill and Hubberholme are separate incumbencies. A school has £28 from endowment, and other charities £34.
