Portrait of the Yorkshire Wolds
Portrait of the Yorkshire Wolds
  • Description
  • Related

The Yorkshire Wolds are a range of rolling chalk hills which rise from the banks of the River Humber, west of Hull, and curve in a crescent shape until they end in the dramatic cliffs of Flamborough Head. Although less well-known than the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors, theWolds are becoming increasingly valued as an area of open, unspoilt countryside.

The gentle hills and dry valleys create a beautiful and peaceful landscape, while there are many picturesque villages. Sheep and cattle graze the steepest slopes but the open tops, with their patchwork quilt of fields, are given over to arable farming. One of the best ways to explore the Wolds is on foot and there are many paths and walks, with the best known being the 79 mile Yorkshire Wolds Way which meanders from Hessle in the south to finish at Filey in the north.

The area has a rich heritage with ancient landmarks, deserted medieval villages, many fine churches and the splendid grand houses of Sledmere and Burton Agnes. The market towns of Driffield, Market Weighton and Pocklington offer a range of individual shops and cafés in attractive surroundings. It is this variety that has been captured in the wonderful photographs of Janet and Peter Roworth; from stunning views to close-up details, they depict the unique landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds.

Janet and Peter Roworth share a background in farming and a concern for the natural and built environment. Janet’s photography developed from her interest in local history, buildings and architecture. She is a freelance family history researcher and has an MA in local history. Peter has worked in conservation for over 30 years and is currently employed by Natural England as Senior Reserve Manager for the Lower Derwent Valley National Nature Reserve. His photography has been a lifelong interest, specializing in landscape and agricultural subjects, and he is an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society. The couple live in the East Riding of Yorkshire.
