Basing ourselves at the village hall in the picturesque village of Staveley, conveniently located near to Harrogate, Ripon and Knaresborough and being easily accessible by car just being 3 miles from the A1(M).  The village has many charming features which lend themselves to our photography workshops and it is also only a few minutes walk to a substantial nature reserve with several lakes, viewing hides and  stunning views where you can often see highland cattle, barn owl, red kite, tufted duck and if you are lucky even otters.
