Angram is a hamlet in Swaledale in the North Riding of Yorkshire. It is situated near to Keld to the north and Thwaite to the south. Angram forms part of the civil parish of Muker.


The hamlet is located on the B6270 between Thwaite and Keld, below Great Shunner Fell and close to a small beck named Skeb Skeugh.

The area around this beck, known as Angram Bottoms, has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest, covering seven fields of 24.2 acres supporting a diverse habitat of flora. A combination of mire and wet grassland, due to many sinkholes and springs. Plants in the wet grasslands that can be found here include sharp-flowered rush, lesser spearwort, slender tufted-sedge, bottle sedge, common marsh-bedstraw, northern marsh-orchid, marsh-marigold and meadowsweet. Other areas of marsh support marsh lousewort, carnation sedge, flea sedge, star sedge, marsh valerian and marsh violet.[1]
