Aysgarth Falls


Our journey began past the Mill Race Tea Shop at the Lower Falls.  Over the stone bridge and up the road to the carpark.  From there, we walked down to the Upper Falls, made even more famous in the fight scene in Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves.  I can just picture Kevin Costner in the water!

 
As we had two young children with us, we did not venture further than the Middle Falls, as to walk all the way down to the Lower Falls would have involved a long slog back up the hill.


It is still an impressive sight with the roaring waters of the River Ure tumbling over those rocks.

What a lovely place! If you're ever around Northumberland, there is a very beautiful stretch of river at Allen Banks and Staward Gorge, which makes an absolutely beautiful walk.
