 In and Around Carperby

A fine example of the typical dales linear village, with its seven-stepped village cross, Carperby was honeymoon host to Mr and Mrs Alf Wight, better known as James Herriot, the author who brought international fame to the Yorkshire Dales.

Aysgarth Church

Carperby is on the sunny, south-facing slope of Wensleydale and offers fine views. It's also just a pleasant stroll from Aysgarth Falls.
