Askrigg, Wensleydale in the Yorkshire Dales


Askrigg is known to many still by its association with the very popular television programme All Creatures and Small. A village of many parts you could say, historic St Oswald’s seemingly placed in the centre for all to admire – you could also take a look at the new clock face! Tall, terraced buildings give an air of elegance with more traditional dales cottages sprinkled in amongst. New developments too are here too helping to keep this village a lively, living community.

Three public houses, each one different, try them all just to be sure, a village shop with tea room, a deli, gym and tennis courts. Numerous walks criss-cross the nearby hills, take a stroll to the waterfalls of Mill Gill and Whitfield Gill Force, or meander along the bank of the River Ure. Explore the many wynds and lanes in the village, and when the time is right, late June and July, walk to one of the best examples of a wild flower meadow in the dales. Ask anyone they will direct you! You could catch the Little White Bus to Hawes or make it down to Leyburn passing through so many beautiful villages of Wensleydale, or take the car and find Buttertubs, Semerwater, the River Bain, Aysgarth Falls, Bolton Castle, the list, as it would be, is endless.
