Aysgarth Falls is a three-tiered waterfall on the River Ure, close to the village of Aysgarth in Wensleydale, North Yorkshire. The three falls cover about a mile in length and so make this a spectacular sight and great for photography! In my opinion, most water is best photographed using long exposure times and, although there are exceptions to this, I decided to use a Lee Big Stopper to slow the exposure down further. It is best to visit this site when there has been a period of rain as this is when the falls are seen at their best.
The waterfalls are famous as they were seen in the film, Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves – with Kevin Costner, so the they tend to get quite a few visitors. However, as the falls run for nearly a mile, you can usually avoid the crowds. The falls themselves are quite wide but not very tall. It is extremely pretty, nonetheless.
