Bishopdale in the Yorkshire Dales
Rising high on the moor above Wharfedale, the Kidstones Pass descends in to one of the quieter Yorkshire Dales.
Bishopdale is a tributary of the larger Wensleydale, Bishopdale Beck joining the river Ure close to the village of West Burton.
Bishopdale is a typical broad flat-bottomed dale with steep sides, with only a handful of hamlets and villages. Thoralby and Newbiggin hide away on side roads, while West Burton is a picturesque village gathered around a large village green, complete with stocks. West Burton also plays host to a Bishopdale favourite, the falls here are popular with families and picnickers in the summer.
