Photographer's Note

Rylstone is a village situated beneath Barden Fell and the twin Skyline landmarks of Rylstone Cross and Cracoe Pinnacle, lying along the B6265 road between Skipton and Grassington in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

From the net.

'Rylstone is currently most famous for being the original home of the Rylstone Women's Institute - whose members achieved recent fame by posing naked for a charity calendar.
Their story has recently been made into a film called "Calendar Girls" starring Julie Walters and Helen Mirren (many of the outdoor sequences actually being shot at another dales village, Kettlewell in nearby Wharfedale).

In nearby Cracoe are a series of limestone hills which are known as the "Cracoe Reef Knolls" - geological remnants of an ancient coral reef which formed in a shallow prehistoric sea many millions of years ago'.
