Visit the Dales


Bainbridge audio trail

This audio trail starts and finishes in Bainbridge where the village surrounds a large green and explores this part of Wensleydale. It takes in the delightful village of Askrigg and the many mills that used to form an important part of the industry of the valley. You will also discover part of the old railway line which ran through the valley and some of the historic buildings in these two villages.

Before you set off, print out a copy of the walk route. An up-to-date Ordnance Survey map is also recommended - Explorer OL30 is the one for this area. You should wear strong shoes or walking boots and take wet weather gear. For more information about what to wear and staying safe visit our Taking care section.
