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.
