blank image Lying at the very heart of Wensleydale, this small market town is linked to the town of Middleham over the River Ure by an iron bridge built with the aid of public subscription in the mid 19th century.
Leyburn Shawl is a terrace providing spectacular views and nearby is 14th century Bolton Castle, built by the wealthy Norman aristocrat Sir Richard Scrope as a home rather than a fortification.

Wensleydale takes on a new perspective when seen from the top of its high turrets.
