Aysgarth Falls is a spectacular stretch of water in Lower Wensleydale. Aysgarth is best known for its triple flight of waterfalls, carved out by the River Ure.

The river stretches out along the valley and dramatically drops 30 metres.

The falls are a product of the Ice Age. Several thousand years ago, great rivers of ice ground down inside the valleys.

Nearby Bishopdale was ground deeper than Wensleydale and the River Ure had to drop a good distance to meet up with it, so the falls were formed.

    Always appreciate your narratives, Paul.. they give an extra understanding of your work. This is quite beautiful. Love the processing that gives this a feeling of age without taking away the sense and feel of power and motion

  • Many thanks Maureen, have not done too much with this, the colour in the water comes from the peat in the ground in this neck of the woods
