Our Northern Heritage

Monday 25 October 2010
                              During the week leading up to the middle of October we showed John and Lindy two friends from London around the countryside in our own county of Lancashire and over the border into Yorkshire. We probably take the countryside in our area for granted  but from the positive comments we received from them and the enjoyment of our days out together  we realize that we are lucky to be surrounded by such beautiful countryside.

                          Lancashire....    down in the Ribble Valley

          On the top of Longridge Fell looking north to the Bowland Fells

                      The River Hodder a tributary of the Ribble

                                Kettlewell in Wharfdale Yorkshire

                          The limestone walls of Upper Wharfedale

                            Walking down into Littondale

                             The River Skirfare in Littondale

                                Stanforth Foss on the River Rible

Still in Yorkshire... the famous Ribblehead viaduct on the Settle to Carlisle railway with the flat summit of Ingleborough in the background

         I though this was amusing .... outside the pub at Ribblehead

                                         Ribblehead station

Nearer home....a visit to John William's  garden on the moor, at present I'm working on the film I shot during the last twelve months

Finally back in Lancashire and the village of Wycoller a local beauty spot made famous with its association with the Bronte Sisters.
