photoblog image Pateley Bridge 1/7

Pateley Bridge 1/7

I haven’t yet shown much in the way of photos from our short Yorkshire Dales holiday in July last year when we rented a farm cottage just outside the small market town of Pateley Bridge in Nidderdale. As you will gather from the towns name it lies on River Nidd which runs through the centre of town and looking down from the main bridge over the river a lone fisherman is enjoying his sport on a little rocky outcrop on the riverside.

It's a great shot Brian... it is all so green and that would be a nice place to fish... i'm jealous... the lake is still frozen....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter, sadly the sky was dull at the time. Perhaps by the time you return from the U.K.the lake will have defrosted.
Any time a river runs through it, Brian, my attention is immediately piqued! Add a fisherman, and you've really got my attention. smile
Brian Walbey: I quite agree Ginnie, where we lived before moving here there is a beautiful river running through the centre of town, see here http://www.stives-town.info/river_great_ouse.asp

This almost looks like heaven on earth. Great scene and I would not mind joining the fisherman.
Brian Walbey: Yes it is a lovely little town, sadly the sky was dull when I took this.

Bristling with green - a great spot for fishing.
Brian Walbey: Yes no doubt a favourite fishing spot for those who enjoy that hobby.
This is a beautiful image Brian, with so much greens contrasting with the water streams.. love it
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ronke, sadly the sky was a bit dull when I took this.

Let's hope he caught something edible
Brian Walbey: Not sure, he'd gone when we walked back a short while later.

A real out-in-the-country picture, Brian
Brian Walbey: It seems it Lisl but it is actually in the centre of town, but it is a delightful old stone built place and seems very old.
I wonder if he caught anything?
Brian Walbey: Not sure, he'd gone when we walked back a short while later.

The river Nidd sounds like something that Monty Python would have used Brian.
Brian Walbey: Indeed it does Chad. Our good friend from Scumsville is very familiar with the Nidd valley.
I love this whole green scene, Brian. Bet the fisher does too.
Brian Walbey: Yes it's lovely isn't it,sadly it was a bit dull at the time though.
What a pleasant scene, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes it's lovely isn't it,sadly it was a bit dull at the time though.
Fisherman's paradise Brian
Brian Walbey: I'm sure it is Janet, a paradise for my son who loves his fishing if he lived in Yorkshire.

I can never understamd why Nidderdale is outside of the Yorkshire Dales National Park; it's beautiful. I've been there in December for a holiday when they had snow (and I had pneumonia) and again for a bike weekend near How Stean Gorge; loved it all. Did you go to the country's oldest sweet shop?
Brian Walbey: We thought Nidderdale a lovely place as well although when we got to the very end the heavens opened, thank goodness there is a tearoom. You should have received my tale of the sweet shop separately.
What a superb fishing spot Brian!
Brian Walbey: Indeed Richard, no doubt at weekends there are plenty of fishermen doing their stuff.
Nice shot, I'm off to the Dales in May
Brian Walbey: Thanks John, we enjoyed what we saw of them during our short Monday to Friday visit.
