HampshireCam Travels ~ Dales Scrapbook, North Yorkshire

A collection of images captured recently while travelling in Swaledale and Wensleydale

The River Ure flowing over the spectacular Aysgarth Falls in Wensleydale. The triple falls were used in the film "Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves" as the setting for a fight between Robin Hood and Friar Tuck.  All photographs © David Packman






After passing over the falls the river continues eastward becoming the River Ouse just before passing through York, entering the North Sea at Kingston upon Hull.


The imposing church of St Andrew's Aysgarth stands high above the falls. The church is said to have the largest churchyard in England.


Walden Beck flows over Cauldron Falls at West Burton


                                      Pied Wagtail.


The Beck flowing under the pack horse bridge at West Burton, it later joins the River Ure just east of Aysgarth Falls.
