Best views in Britain

Friday, August 10th, 2007

The Guardian has a selection of some of the winners in ITV’s upcoming series Britain’s Favourite View.

There are some great images there, well worth a look, but my favourite, more because it reminds me of home than anything else, is the photo above of Swaledale in the Yorkshire Dales (next to the wonderfully named Arkengarthdale).
It’s a massive region of England and I don’t think I was ever bored visiting because you can always discover something new – a working blacksmith, standing stones, gorgeous views, the giant golfballs of the US Air Force’s Menwith Hill monitoring station, or one of the many waterfalls in the area.

Worth a visit if you’re ever in the country and a great alternative to the usual sites (plus it’s close to York, Ripon, Durham and other cities). (And no, I’m not being sponsored by the Tourist Board…)
