Skipton is a really nice town situated between the Yorkshire Dales to its north and the moors to its south. It has a really nice, well preserved, 900 year old motte and bailey castle right in the middle of town. The high street has regular street markets and the town has numerous pubs, restaurants and cafes as well as lots of independent shops. So this bustling town has lots going for it and loads of photo opportunities right up front . . . . but I preferred to look behind the scenes a little bit and came up with a shot from the canal towpath showing the character of some of the town’s wonderful cottages just slightly off the well trodden shopping areas, and one shot that is the view a visitor gets when using a small car park just behind the shops.
