List of Yorkshire Dales

This is a list of Yorkshire Dales, arranged geographically from south to north. Side dales are indented under the dale from which they branch. An alphabetical list follows at the end.

The Yorkshire Dales are dales in the Pennine area of the historic county of Yorkshire in northern England. They do not include dales south of Airedale or dales in other areas of Yorkshire, for example in the North York Moors. They are now mainly in the county of North Yorkshire, but some are now in Cumbria or County Durham. Most of the dales are in the Yorkshire Dales National Park,[1] Nidderdale, Washburndale and Colsterdale are in the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Teesdale and its side dales, sometimes considered part of the Yorkshire Dales,[2] are in the North Pennines AONB.
