A painting from my recent visit to the Calder Valley; the area was a bit of a revelation to me. Steep sided valleys, dry stone walls tumbling off the hillside, derelict and semi-derelict buildings echoing the industrial revolution: a very different feel to the more northerly dales where the industry is from a more distant past or at least its physical evidence is less obvious. I liked it a lot.
