All Creatures Great and Small

Do you recognise this ford?

Here’s the ford you see the old car go through at the start of All Creatures Great and small, a BBC TV show through out my childhood.

It was compulsive viewing in my village as a child, with everyone either being a farmer or working on them. this is a little sketch of the place I took with the Mavic Air drone whilst I was up there on a very quiet day.

Ever since I started photographing the dales in 2003, I had wondered where this ford was, I’d seen a few but this was at the bottom of a big “dip”.

So here it is, my little ode to the road between Langthwaite and Low Row
