Bransdale valley runs southwards through the North York Moors National Park and is situated between Bilsdale and Farndale. Bransdale is the most isolated of the dales in the moors with the majority of visitors discovering Farndale and Rosedale however it provides excellent terrain for walking with numerous scenic spots overlooking the eastern moors.
Bransdale carries the Hodge Beck for five miles from its 1,400-ft-high source till it enters the limestone to form the Sleightholme and Kirkdales onwards into the Vale of Pickering and River Rye. Entry roads come over moors from Kirkbymoorside and by a steep descent from Helmsley, while a ring-road circles the upper dale. Much of the dale now belongs to the National Trust. Limestone, freestone, jet, coal and iron workings can all be found.
