Photographer's Note

I took this photo on the Pennine Way footpath in North Yorkshire. This section of the path runs between Keld and the Tan Hill Inn, which is the highest pub in England. This photo was taken looking West into Weststonedale.The bridge over the stream is a packhorse bridge. All transport and trade throughout the country was carried out by caravans of horse, with large baskets either side, carrying every commodity from salt to lead ore. Packhorse bridges never had sides to enable the horses and loads to pass over them. There has been lead mining in the Yorkshire Dales since Roman times. Indeed it was said that all the roofs in Rome were lined in lead from Yorkshire.
I love walking in the dales and love this photo, which I have as my wallpaper at work. Hope you like it too.
John.
