Gayle Beck (Ure Trib): Aysgill Force to Ure Confluence

Grade 3/4 (5)
Length 2.5 km
Paddleable high to spate

in North West ยท Yorkshire


Rumour has it that Aysgill Force has been run, but only in high water by the very brave. The rest of the beck contains many small rapids and shelf drops, particuarly from above the village of Gayle and into Hawes itself, some of which have shallow landings.
