View of Aysgarth Falls, where the River Ure tumbles over a mile-long series of broad, shallow rock shelves. The 1868 National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland commented: "Aysgarth Force is the finest waterfall in Yorkshire. The river Ure precipitates itself over a lofty ridge of rock, not far from the church. A single arch 70 feet in span crosses the river above the fall. From this bridge the view is very impressive, embracing several falls gleaming among the rocks and trees, and the picturesque tower of the church rising quietly above a wood."
