Many thanks to The Red Lion Hotel for facilitating this camera's location. The River Wharfe for much of its length it is the county boundary between West Yorkshire and North Yorkshire. The name Wharfe is Celtic and means 'twisting, winding'. The valley of the River Wharfe is known as Wharfedale. The river source is at Beckermonds, Langstrothdale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park and flows through Kettlewell, Grassington, Bolton Abbey, Addingham, Ilkley, Burley-in-Wharfedale, Otley, Wetherby and Tadcaster. It then flows into the River Ouse near Cawood. The section of the river from its source to around Addingham is known as Upper Wharfedale and has a very different character to the river downstream. The five-arched bridge over which the Dalesway passes, it's in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It is 2 miles (3.2 km) southeast of Hebden, along a river path dated to Viking times.
