There’s a fabulous stretch of Yorkshire which takes in an area of the South Pennines and part of the Peak District National Park. Here the landscape and geology differs greatly from the Dales and the North York Moors to the north, and the Wolds and vales of the east. The good folk inhabiting the villages and towns that stretch in a great arc around this area from Holmfirth to Sheffield might not want me to let the world know too much about their private bolthole, but it really is a region worth exploring. Take a look at our splendid centrefold photograph in this month’s magazine – out this week – if you need convincing of the drama and beauty of the area. It’s an inspirational part of the world and this month we report on a couple who are hoping to attract artists, poets and walkers into the region. We certainly travel the four corners of our great county in this issue with a study of Wensleydale, a walk near the coast and a trip to the western fells for an ice cream. If you’d like to continue your trip then visit our website – – for further ideas or pick up a copy of one of our Dalesman Visitor Guides.
