Yorkshire Dales & Coastline
with Tom Peck. 29 May - 5 June (7 nights)
This is a split centre trip to cover 2 very different landscape areas in the beautiful county of Yorkshire. The first 4 days will be based in Malham in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, where we will visit Gordale Scar, a huge gorge with a double waterfall; Malham Cove with its famous limestone pavements; The 'Lone Tree' with its striking lead-in lines created by the grykes and clints in the rocks; the Ribblehead Viaduct which straddles the dale with its 24 monumental arches; and Janet's Foss - an intimate stream in lush woodland with a waterfall at the end of the walk. The workshop will also coincide with the famous wildflower meadows in Swaledale, where we will spend a day photographing this spectacular natural event in Muker and Gunnerside. We will then cross the county – stopping in York to photograph the Minster (largest Gothic cathedral in Northern Europe) & on to Whitby where we will have two days to photograph the dramatic coastline – Whitby itself with its ruined castle, Robin Hood’s Bay, Staithes and the wreck on the beach at Black Nab. Accommodation in Malham is at Newfield Hall, a small country house hotel just outside Malham. Newfield Hall is full board with packed lunch. In Whitby we shall stay in a B&B
Price £1100 (deposit £250). 8 places.
