Yorkshire Dales - Burnsall
Some more views of Burnsall

Burnsall is a picturesque riverside village in Lower Wharfedale downstream of Grassington in the Yorkshire Dales. Situated by an ancient packhorse bridge crossing a bend in the meandering River Wharfe, the village makes an excellent location for exploring the unspoiled countryside of Lower Wharfedale.

Nearby attractions include Loup Scar, the quaintly named village of Appletreewick and the sinister limestone gorge of Troller's Gill in Trollerdale (said to be haunted by Scandinavian trolls and a huge spectral hound with "eyes as big as saucers").

Downstream of Burnsall are the ruined historic monuments of Barden Tower and Bolton Abbey, along with the treacherous stretch river channel known as The Strid.
