Hardraw

Information on Hardraw, Yorkshire

Hardraw is a small village in Wensleydale, most famous for its waterfall, Hardraw Force, which is accessed for a small charge via the bar of the 13th century Green Dragon Inn in the village. The falls are situated in Hardraw scaur which is a wooded ravine just North of the village, and with a single 100 foot drop are reputedly the highest waterfalls above ground in England. Just below the falls is a natural limestone amphitheatre which is the location for a well known brass band contest held every September. The Green Dragon Inn also hosts a yearly folk festival – the Hardraw Gathering.
