 In and Around Gayle

This picturesque village is now almost linked with Hawes. Duerley Beck is spanned by an old and narrow bridge and can also be crossed by a ford at a point where ducks and geese are often in evidence. There are two waterfalls, Gayle Force and Aisgill, nearby.

Aysgarth Church

The village of Gayle is living testimony to the Dales' industrial heritage: a community gathered around the textile mill, now a protected building and still housing the world's oldest operational turbine.
