Muker in Swaledale

One of a series of art postcards mty father had in his collection.  They were all addressed to him but I'm not quite sure how they came to be in his collection because he didn't normally collect this type of card.

Muker is a village in the Yorkshire Dales.  It was once a Norse settlement and that's where the name came from, meaning narrow acre.  It's a very small village but popular in the summer with walkers on the Coast to Coast Walk and for climbing Kisdon and Shunner Fells.

The original painting was by E Charlton Taylor.

  1. A very interesting card. I am learning so much about the world seeing your cards.

  2. Reading your postcard blog and wondering you must have million of them.
    The stories you tell are very interesting.
    Cheers. :)

  3. This is quite a lovely picture...perfect for the winter season!


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
