The Photographer’s Guide to The Yorkshire Dales

Discover the top photography locations in The Yorkshire Dales with this detailed guide book.

The Yorkshire Dales has some of the most photogenic waterfalls in the UK, ranging from the modest but elegant Scaleber Force to the lofty heights of Hawdraw Force. It’s well worth visiting the area for these alone, but it also has plenty of other amazing photography locations to explore, such as impressive viaducts, heather-clad moorlands and picturesque valleys with lonely barns and intricate field patterns.

The other standout highlight in the Dales is the fascinating limestone pavements. Although these geological wonders can be found elsewhere in the UK, the Dales is blessed with a large number of attractive examples, and combined with the beautiful surrounding scenery they’re a photographer’s playground.

The book is split into six sections:

Section 1: Ingleton & Dentdale
Section 2: Ribblesdale
Section 3: Malhamdale
Section 4: Wensleydale
Section 5: Swaledale
Section 6: Wharfdale
