Enjoy some historic architecture - Castle Bolton
We are spoilt for choice in the area for Abbeys and Castles. A favourite is just a few miles across Wensleydale near Redmire to Castle Bolton, a medieval castle. Don?t forget there is also Jervaulx Abbey near East Witton, the National Trust?s Fountains Abbey near Ripon and Richmond Castle in Richmond.
Enjoy a ride on a steam train - Wensleydale Railway
Take a journey on a carefully restored steam train through the scenic Lower Wensleydale countryside. The Wensleydale Railway departs from Leeming Bar meandering through Lower Wensleydale to Leyburn and Redmire.
Bishopdale forms the tributary dale of Wensleydale and is some 7 miles long with Bishopdale Beck running through it to join up with the River Ure about 1.1miles (1.8Km) east of Aysgarth. It connects to Upper Wharfedale with Wensleydale and finds its boundary at the Kidstones pass where the Bishopdale beck continues on to Cray and Buckden in Upper Wharfedale.
There are only three villages in the valley, Thoralby, Newbiggin and West Burton, which claims to have the largest village green in England. J.M.W. Turner spent much of his time here painting the landscape.
