West Burton Waterfall & Aysgarth Falls Walk.

This post is not a long walk documented in depth - but it takes in some stunning waterfalls that I have visited and photographed on quite a few occasions.

Aysgarth Falls is a popular spot for tourists on a warm day, and is also well photographed. West Burton Falls, not that far away is perhaps not as well known and tends to be quieter.

The best images I have taken at Aysgarth Falls where on an Autumn Evening, when the tree's turned a lovely rusty colour.

Walking Route:

I found a walk on the walking englishman website, map below, which takes in both West Burton Waterfalls and Aysgarth Falls - allowing you to take in some of Yorkshires best waterfalls. More information on this walk can be found by visiting this link www.walkingenglishman.com/dales21.htm

west burton village
The idyllic village of West Burton at the start of the walk. I was very impressed by the quaint stone cottages surrounding the village green - the quintessential Yorkshire Dales village and well worth a visit in itself. We also had lunch in the Fox & hounds pub and I'd recommend there. Pic from www.countryhideaways.co.uk


Well I hope, once again, that this blog post inspires you to visit the area of West Burton & Aysgarth and see the waterfalls for yourself.
