The home of Wensleydale cheese amongst other things, Hawes is a traditional market town based in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, with origins that go back to the 12th Century. Well known for food, drink and shopping, many thousands of people flock to see the town every year to visit the town and see the stunning countryside.
Hawes – England’s highest town at 850ft above sea level – offers spectacular panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and landscape in all directions. From this location viewers can see rolling valleys for miles around, with views of Swaledale, Colterdale, Dentdale and Chapel-Le-Dale possible on a clear day.
At The North Yorkshire Gallery our resident landscape photographer, Laurie Smithies has thoroughly explored this unique area and this is reflected in many of our landscape photos, prints and canvases of Hawes and the surrounding areas.
Spectacular Hawes Photos and Prints
The name “Hawes” means “pass between mountains”, and this is appropriate as the town is situated in between two mountains, Buttertubs and Fleet Moss. Walkers can enjoy the rolling hills and valleys of the area, visit Hawdraw waterfall and also take a look at Gayle Mill, an 18th Century wind powered cotton spinning mill that now lies abandoned.
Our Hawes prints, photos and canvases are selection of the images that we have taken in different locations around the town and surrounding area. Many of our images have been taken in different seasons and at different times of the day to get the best effect in terms of light and shade.
