Dark Skies Festival

The Dark Skies festival comes to the Yorkshire Dales starting this weekend and there are lots of brilliant events over the next two weeks for families, first-time stargazers and those wishing to expand their knowledge.  Close to Eldroth House Holiday Cottages you can photograph the landscape after dark at Malham Cove or Settle, get crafty making rockets and telescopes at Malham or design a lino print at Chapel-le-Dale, Ingleton. There are light painting walks in Skipton and a walk in the dark lantern parade through Malham.  Check out what’s on from 9th to 25th February on the Yorkshire Dales website.
