An art exhibition focused on the Yorkshire Three Peaks is being held at Yorkshire Dales National Park offices through July and August, which will raise money for conservation of the area and may inspire people to don hiking boots
and climb them.
Three Peaks and Moor, by Ilkley-based artist Lucia Smith, will be on display from this Friday (July 1st) at the Yoredale offices of the authority in Bainbridge.
She said her work was based on her own experiences in learning more about Ingleborough, Whernside and Pen-Y-Ghent.
"In my search to find more moorland contours with which to play, in the last two years I've rediscovered the Three Peaks area for myself - and revelled in their familiarity and grandeur," the artist remarked.
An ascent of all three to mark her 50th birthday inspired the exhibition, Ms Smith added.
Money raised from visitors and those taking part in workshops organised by the artist will help the park authority maintain footpaths on the mountains.
At 2,416 ft, Whernside is the highest of the trio, and the loftiest point in Yorkshire under its present-day boundaries.
