Birkdale, North Yorkshire

Birkdale, North Yorkshire

Birkdale is a dale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, England. The dale itself is very small compared to some of the other Yorkshire dales. It has one small hamlet called Keld. The dale itself is a tributary dale to Swaledale, another dale in the Yorkshire Dales. Geographically, the dale is the furthest north-westerly dale, and is often overlooked by tourists and holiday makers in favour of more popular destinations such as the honeypot dales of Swaledale and Wensleydale, both of which are in close proximity to Birkdale.

The Birkdale Beck is a stream that joins with the Great Sleddale Beck to become the River Swale.
