Aysgarth Falls are a triple flight of waterfalls, surrounded by forest and farmland, carved out by the River Ure over an almost a one-mile stretch on its descent to mid-Wensleydale in the Yorkshire Dales of England, near the village of Aysgarth. The falls are quite spectacular during wet weather, as thousands of gallons of water cascade over the series of broad limestone steps.

Aysgarth Falls have attracted visitors for over 200 years; Ruskin, Turner and Wordsworth visited, all enthusing about the falls’ outstanding beauty. The upper fall was featured in the film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.

In addition to the falls, there are walks which wind through the wooded valley, offering views of the river and falls. Wild flowers appear in the spring and summer, and wild birds, squirrels and deer may also be seen. Nearby is St Andrew’s church, which has a large churchyard, reputed to be the largest in England. The church has a medieval painted wooden screen rescued from the destroyed Jervaulx Abbey.

The name originates from old Norse, meaning the open space in the oak trees.

Aysgarth Falls is part of the Freeholders’ Wood Local Nature Reserve (LNR) and is protected as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). It comprises a gorge through which the River Ure descends by a series of stepped waterfalls consisting of horizontal layers of hard limestone separated by thin bands of soft shale. These rocks are part of the Yoredale geological series that were laid down on the sea floor over 300 million years ago.

It was featured on the television programme Seven Natural Wonders as one of the wonders of the North.

Ever since a child, aviation has been a keen interest of mine, with warbirds being my favourite. Since joining Redbubble, I have become a keen follower of HDR work, which I am concerntrating on at the moment.
