Joe Willis, well known to local residents for his writing in the Northern Echo, and now publisher of Richmondshire Today, has written a guide to Swaledale and Arkengarthdale which really gets behind the scenes.
In Swaledale: An Insider's Guide, Joe introduces readers to the shepherds and farmers, the artists and gardeners, the High Court Judge and the bootmaker, the innkeepers, cave rescuers, singers and brass band players who are just some of the fascinating people who live and work in these wild northern Dales.
Lavishly illustrated with delightful photos, Swaledale: An Insider's Guide will help you get under the skin of Swaledale. If you love to read countryside magazines like The Dalesman, here's the perfect present for yourself. Buy two or three, even, and that's Christmas sorted!
Swaledale: An Insider's Guide costs £5.99, and is now available from Richmond Information Centre and from most Post Offices, newsagents and general outlets in Swaledale. You can also order a copy from our online shop (UK P&P £2.50).
