Muker's meadows


As well as the stone field barns, Swaledale's hay meadows around Muker are of international importance for their wildflowers. They are now protected and farmers receive grants that allow them to farm using traditional methods, without using artificial fertilisers. I don't know how I've never visited before when the flowers are blooming. They really are exceptionally stunning.

  1. I use the word idyllic so often on your posts but, really, that's what this is. I've been enjoying this recent series.
