Aysgarth is a village and civil parish in Wensleydale, in the Richmondshire district of North Yorkshire, England. The village is in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, about south-west from Richmond and west of the County Town of Northallerton.

According to a map found in GENUKI illustrating the ecclesiastical parishes of the North Riding of Yorkshire as they existed in the first half of the 19th century, Aysgarth was a very large parish covering the southwest corner of the North Riding. It would appear from the Wikipedia descriptions of various places within Aysgarth Rural District that the parish has since been divided.

Prior to the nationwide municipal reorganization of 1974, Aysgarth was in the Aysgarth Rural District of the North Riding of Yorkshire from 1894. Historically it was an ecclesiastical parish in the wapentake of Hang West.
