Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in North Yorkshire borders the Yorkshire Dales National Park to the east and south and covers an area of 233 square miles. It comprises most of Nidderdale itself as well as small parts of Wharfedale, the Washburn Valley and Wensleydale. Nidderdale’s only town is the picturesque Pateley Bridge, and its highest point is Great Whernside, at 2310 feet above sea level. The area is diverse and dramatic, with wild, open moorlands and secluded, pastoral dales, and the quality of its landscape was formally recognised by the Government on 14 February 1994, when it was designated as an AONB.
