The AONB includes most of Nidderdale itself, part of lower Wharfedale, the Washburn valley and part of lower Wensleydale. The highest land is Great Whernside which rises to 704 metres above sea level on the border with the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Pateley Bridge is the only town with Otley, Ilkley, Masham and Ripon just outside the borders.
