A short drive from Leyburn took me past Bolton Castle on my way to view Aysgarth Falls.
This was where Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned in 1568.
The River Ure tumbles over a series of broad limestone steps and although not particularly high the waterfalls are one of Wensleydales most famous beauty spots.
The falls featured in the Kevin Costner film.
Robin Hood-Prince of Thieves.
There is a pleasant walk linking the Upper, Middle and Lower Falls.
I then drove to nearby Bainbridge for a visit... a pretty Wensleydale village I had travelled through on my journey to Leyburn.
Bainbridge Village... Wensleydale
My next stop is a visit to the lovely town of Richmond.
My journey took me past the Artillery Ranges of nearby Catterick Garrison.
I had to take an image of this road sign as I passed... I thankfully don't see these everyday.
