Dales Beauty Spots Feature in new BBC2 Series

The Dales is a three-part documentary series made by BBC Yorkshire in which explorer and adventurer Paul Rose will visit some of the most popular spots in the Yorkshire Dales as well as discovering some hidden gems.

Each of the 30 minute episodes will see presenter Paul Rose explore a different location in one of the North of England’s most spectacular spots. Paul is currently filming in Wharfedale, Wensleydale and Swaledale.

The first episode takes Paul to Wharfedale where he follows the course of the River Wharfe meeting the people who live and work in one of the most visited parts of the Dales. Paul visits Wensleydale in episode two where his journey takes him from one of the highest points in the Dales to the market town of Leyburn. And the destination is Swaledale for the final episode where Paul meets some of the farmers responsible for looking after rare wild flower habitats before he ends his trek in Richmond.

Paul Rose said: “There are not many places to rival the stunning landscapes of the Yorkshire Dales. I loved pulling on my boots again and exploring its world class sights and meeting the hard working people who make their living in this amazing landscape.”
