Could this be .............

......... the place (40 years on) where Dora and Steve crossed the river with the horse in the Steve episode? The deep pool to the right, partly hidden by the trees.

River Wharfe, near Bolton Abbey.

Hi Hercules.

I spent a day going up and down the river at Bolton Abbey to find the location. If you look in Jane Royston's book on page 22 you'll see from these photos I think I found the same spot which was a bit further up the river from the Abbey at the second bridge along. Is this where your photo was taken?

It's a beautiful place  :)

No idea. It's a screen cap from a DVD I was watching about fly fishing techniques made by a Yorkshireman. It was set on the Wharfe near Bolton abbey and as soon as I saw that shot something rang a bell. It could be wrong of course!  :)

Ah! It looks like the section of river where the Abbey would be on the left just out of shot but I could very well be wrong  :) If I'm right, the part where Steve crossed is a bit further on up the river....
