The dale of Walden is an offshoot of Wensleydale running south to north, leading up to the hamlets of Walden and Walden Head. It is a hidden gem of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
The name Walden, first recorded in 1270, comes from the Old English wala denu, meaning “valley of the Welshmen”. Walden Beck flows down the valley, over Cauldren Falls at West Burton onto Bishopdale Beck and the river Ure.
