Chris Orchin Photography | Yorkshire the White Rose County

Yorkshire the White Rose County

With  rapidly growing collection of photographs from this beautiful county I have had to restructure the collection with gallery's relating to specific areas of the county and in particular the Dales and Moors. Currently in the collection are:

Rivaleaux Abbey

Rosedale (the North York Moors)

Swaledale and North Yorkshire

Wensleydale and Malham

I hope that you will enjoy them and the seasons they represent. To see the changes that can occur I have chose to high light this with two images taken at the Hadraw Falls near Hawes. One image was taken in June in the height of summer, the other more recent was taken this month on my latest trip north. The other two images were also taken this month on Swaledale and Arkengarthdale. They depict two aspects of history. The bridge which is still in use dates back hundreds of years and once was the resting place for coffins being moved from the upper dale to the nearest place of burial several miles downstream. Arkengarth was by contrast a place of industry at the time of the industrial revolution up until the19th century. The Old Gang Lead Mine and Smelting Plant is now an protected heritage site and a place of peace in a beautiful but sometimes a forbidding landscape.
