One of my favourite places in the Yorkshire Dales

One of my favourite places in the Yorkshire Dales, between Grassington and Kilnsey in Upper Whafedale. This is where we come for family time – fishing for minnows, kayaking down the rapids, skimming stones, building dams, wild swimming, watching fish leap out of the water to catch flies, exploring the woods and, of course, eating a picnic. With it raining for so most of the school break we’ve not been here much this summer but I took this photo on our latest visit. I often drive alongside this river heading north to cook in Wharfedale, Bishopsdale, Swaledale and Wensleydale – always a pleasure.
