Square Saturday… Stairway to… Malham

‘There’s a lady who’s sure
All that glitters is gold
And she’s buying a stairway to…’

Another image from the sheet of negatives I found recently that were shot on a borrowed Minolta Autocord.

These are a few of the 400 odd steps that form part of the Pennine Way footpath leading to the top of Malham Cove, a 230ft high, curved limestone formation half a mile north of the village of Malham in North Yorkshire.

Square Saturday… Jervaulx Abbey, May 1998

I spent a few years (what seems like a lifetime ago now) working in the photographic retail trade and one of the ‘perks’ was the occasional loan of equipment that I wouldn’t otherwise be able to get my grubby little mitts on!

To be honest I’d completely forgotten ever using a Minolta Autocord until I found a sheet of negatives earlier this week but unfortunately I have no idea which model it was.

Jervaulx Abbey is somewhere I really should return to, it’s a beautiful, tranquil place in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales.

I think this is the remains of the Monk’s Infirmary, on the south east corner of the site (I really need to keep better notes!).
