About Askrigg

Once a bustling market village of upper Wensleydale, Askrigg still reflects its history with stone flagged pavements leading to a cobbled market place centred by an ancient cross and overlooked by a 13th century church.

For the essentials and pleasantries of life, Askrigg offers three public houses, a general store, cafe, delicatessen, bakery, gym, tennis courts and a hair dressers.
