Askrigg

Description
Askrigg is an ancient market village situated on the northern side of Wensleydale and is overlooked by the peak of Addlebrough. It is centrally situated in Wensleydale, only 5 miles from Hawes to the west and 7 and 14 miles respectively from Aysgarth and Leyburn to the east. Roads to the north of the village lead to Thwaite and Muker in Swaledale or alternatively to Reeth and on to Arkengarthdale.

One mile to the south is Bainbridge and a further 3 miles away is Semerwater, the largest natural lake in Yorkshire. Askrigg was formerly a place where wool was traded but more recently it has become known for its use in the filming of the BBC series All Creatures Great and Small, based on the James Herriot stories.

Skeldale House, opposite Manor House, was used for outside views of the vet's surgery, while the Kings Arms Hotel next door was used for scenes in the fictional Drovers Arms.
