A circular from the National Park Centre at Aysgarth in Wensleydale taking in three flights of waterfalls in a delightful short woodland walk. The waterfalls have been a popular attraction since the early 19th century, when Wordsworth used to visit. Turner and Ruskin have painted the falls and they were even the setting for a fight scene in the Hollywood film Robin Hood - Prince of Thieves. The walk takes in Middle and then Lower falls before heading out past Hollins house where you get a view of Castle Bolton. The return is via St Josephs and Freeholders' woods before passing back through the car park before visiting the Upper Falls.
