A Photographic Journey

Richard Walls


Kisdon Landscapes takes the reader on a photographic journey over and around Kisdon Hill, through the meadowlands, limestone gorges, heather clad moorland, mires and ancient woodland, that make Kisdon so special. The journey begins at Loaning End on Birkdale Common, where the Swale begins, and ends at Ivelet Bridge, where Kisdon’s influence finally wains.

A must for lovers of Upper Swaledale.
