The little village of Aysgarth, with a population of less than 200, is one of the gems of the Dales National Park. It sits on the A684 roughly halfway between the larger settlements of Hawes and Leyburn, about twenty miles from the A1 at Leeming Bar, so is relatively easy to reach, and the journey is amply repaid by a visit to the beautiful Aysgarth Falls. The falls are one of the most famous sights in Wensleydale, and millions who have never visited there will nonetheless know them from their use in the film Robin Hood Prince of Thieves. The River Ure drops through three falls at Aysgarth, with ancient woods as the fitting backdrop. Though not high the falls can be spectacular after rain upstream, when huge volumes of water cascade over them. The village itself is a pretty one, stone cottages and a lovely old bridge spanning the river, and St Andrew’s church above the falls is famed for its churchyard, supposedly the largest in England, and for the medieval screen rescued from Jervaulx Abbey after the dissolution in 1537. It was originally a Viking settlement, its name being derived from the Old Norse for clearing in the oak woods. There is easy car parking at two spots near the falls, with some lovely marked walks through the woods to stretch the legs after the car journey to get there, the springtime in particular offering the bonus of wildflowers for the rambler.
