Richard and Cherry Kearton, born in remote Upper Swaledale, were early photographers. By the 1890s they were travelling widely, and they soon became internationally famous for their pioneering wildlife pictures from all over the globe. (Those aren't Swale Penguins in the photo above.)
Helen Guy, Curator of the Keld Resource Centre, has researched their life and their impact, and will give an entertaining illustrated talk on Wednesday 1 March, as part of the Civic Society's 2023 lecture series. The event is at 7:30, in the Methodist Church, Queens' Road, Richmond. Admission is £5 for non-members, payable at the door.
