Artist's Description

Leyburn Shawl is a wooded area near the pretty little Dales town of Leyburn in North Yorkshire.
There is a wonderful legend about where the name Shawl comes from & it might derive from a very ancient Norse word schalle or skali that mean huts or shelters. Indeed, on the land below the Shawl there are said to be some remains of pre-historic dwellings that used to be occupied by early dales folk.
Certainly, the vista from the Shawl is splendid even if much of it is viewed through trees. Penhill is very prominent on the horizon, with several small villages in a fine expanse of Wensleydale plus, if conditions are right, the mighty sound of Aysgarth Falls, particularly when the River Ure is heavy with flood water. Access to the Shawl is easy – you leave the top of Leyburn market place and go through Shawl Mews to the right of the Bolton Arms Hotel, and then follow your nose.
