A Meander Down The Esk
A Journey in Paint and Pencil
The River Esk and the Esk valley encapsulates the best of northern English countryside. Desolate moorland which at times can be bleak. A river gently flowing through forests, past hamlets and villages. A countryside that was once blighted by industry that is now a diverse and vibrant home to wildlife. In contrast to the sparsely populated hills, Whitby is one of Britain’s most popular traditional seaside towns, it is still a working port with a fishing industry.
Throughout the course of the Esk there is a rich history and heritage. The supporting text to John Freeman’s watercolours and pencil drawings provides background information and explores the Esk valley of the past.
A Meander Down the Esk will appeal to people who love the North York Moors National Park, the Esk valley and Whitby.
Featuring 60 of John`s beautiful watercolour images and over 100 pencil drawings accompanied by over 18000 words of text in a high quality hardback book.
