Ribblesdale – a fantastic photography destination
Coming from Ribblesdale, I’m obviously biased – though I’m a good 20 miles downstream from most of these destinations
The Ribble is 70 miles long, starting at Ribblehead and entering the Irish sea at Preston. It’s a stunning journey down the valley, past Settle, Clitheroe and Ribchester – though these locations are all from Settle to Ribblehead
So here’s our pictorial guide to Ribblesdale
Above the valley
These are from above Langthwaite – take the Malham Road and you’ll find them.
A little outside of Settle on the Airton Road
A 30 minute walk from Stainforth – or you can park next to it if you’re brave!
A steep walk out of Stainforth, or an amble down from the Malham road
Hoffman Lime Kiln
Just by the train track and road, near Stainforth – very easy access and parking
A high station with track crossing, so you can get unique views – and park right outside it!
The best viaduct on the Settle Carlisle route – amazing in this bleak landscape
