Not there's enough space to list them all here. It would help the helpful Northerners to know which part of the dales you will be staying in.

Thanks for any help. Roger

How long have you got?

I live up the Northern end of the Dales, and i really couldn't list everything, but THIS may be helpful.

At Grassington you're not far from Malham Cove, Kilnsey Crag is just up the road, so are the waterfalls at Cray and of course Skipton is only a few minutes down the road.

If you don't mind travelling a little, Aysgarth falls are maybe half an hour north, Hawes is a little further on and from there you can drop in Swaledale, the dales is pretty much the mollusc of your choice.

Although to be honest wherever you go on the dales you'll find something to shoot.

Spoken like a true Southerner. Despite the invention of the horseless carriage it can take an hour to travel 30 miles in the Dales, so knowing your base will make a difference. However,

Janet's Foss in Malhamdale
Malham Cove and Goredale Scar
Bolton Abbey and the waterfall in the Valley of Desolation
Kilnsey Park Fishing Lake for the shot of the farm with the crag behind ( not often done even for Northerners)
Scaleber Force
Ribblehead
Twistleton Scar (if southerners have legs)


Over to somebody else.

Hi, depends on what your preferences are.
For railway - Carlisle - Settle railway is nearby. Elerby Railway near Skipton
Scenery - Brimham Rocks,
Qwerky - Take a look at the Forbidden Corner
Castles etc- Fountains Abbey Skipton again
Also Harrogate and Knaresborough (Mother Shiptons Cave)

Your also not far from the southern edge of the Lake District

Most of the above will have web sites - Hope this helps

If it aint too parky for you Southerners walk down from the main car park to the River Wharfe and along the river to Burnsall, plenty to photograph in Grassington itself.

Nah, Northerners are OK really.
Mind you, some of them will be in trouble when the new dodecagonal-shape pound coin is introduced in three year's time - with the right size spanner it'll be easier to prise one out of a Yorkshireman's hand Wink

I'm not sure that really is the reason they're going for the same shape as the old thrupenny bit though, I think it's because by then a pound will actually be worth about as much as an old thrupenny bit was Wink
