Aysgarth Falls

Aysgarth Falls are a triple flight of waterfalls, surrounded by woodland and farmland, carved out by the River Ure over an almost one-mile (two-kilometre) stretch on its descent to mid-Wensleydale in the Yorkshire Dales of England, near the village of Aysgarth.

The name originates from Old Norse and means the open space in the oak trees. Wild flowers appear in the spring and summer, for example snowdrops in January and February, primroses in April and bluebells in May.
