Swaledale sheep and lambs

A return visit to Gunnerside in superlative Swaledale, North Yorkshire. The road from Reeth

offers a fine view of the dale before entering the village. Man and Nature overlap well here.

The village is pretty.

Walking out towards Ivelet, a white butterfly feeds upon plants.

And House Sparrows are seen in the village.

The fields are covered with sheep and their lambs.

Spring flowers are everywhere

This includes Blackthone.

But it’s the scenery of hills, fields, dry-stone walls and barns which makes this place special.



Spagnum moss grows readily over the dry-stone walls.

Let’s leave the dale with a few more pictures of the sheep and lambs.
