Airedale is a geographic area in Yorkshire, England, corresponding to the river valley of the River Aire (pronounced air). The valley stretches from the river's origin in Malham which is in the Yorkshire Dales, down past Keighley and Bingley, through Leeds and Castleford and on to join the River Ouse at Airmyn. This valley is the major cause of the Aire Gap, a pass of great topographic significance that provides a low-altitude pass through the Pennine chain.
