Askrigg is a small village and civil parish in Wensleydale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It is part of the Richmondshire district of North Yorkshire, England. The village and its parish are located in Upper Wensleydale, west of Leyburn, and east of Hawes. It is west of the county town of Northallerton.

The civil parish area covers the village itself and several small hamlets including Newbiggin and Woodhall. It is also known as "Askrigg and Low Abbotside Parish", as it occupies the same geographic area as the two parishes combined. (Source: Wikipedia article, Askrigg, section: Geography)

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