There are plenty of common toads and frogs in the valley. Also Smooth Newts:

A smooth Newt from the Dales’ pond on the Hawksworth side of the valley: the well marked throat and big belly spots distinguish from Palmate Newt.

I’ve seen Grass Snakes elsewhere in the Aire Valley but not in Gillbeckdale itself. I’d be interested to hear if anyone has any records of reptiles or other newt species locally.
