“Exploring the Tees Glacial Plain” by the Darlington Association of Photographers (D.A.P)
Exhibition dates: Monday 29th October 2020 until Friday 27th November 2020.
Open Monday to Friday, 9am until 4:45pm
If you are coming along, could you please let us know so that we can get a rough idea of numbers.
Also a gentle reminder to follow government guidelines in regards to social distancing and the wearing of face masks, bring one along with you.
The Tees glacial plain – This is the area of the countryside which has been formed by the melting of the glaciers that covered England during the Ice Age. The features which we now see are as the result of the ice melt and the eons of years of water and weather erosion, coupled with the effects of man’s involvement with the area.
We now see the ruggedness of the landscape & scars in the Pennines and the flat land as the river flows eastward into the North Sea.
When the country was covered by ice in this particular area, three glaciers were responsible for the main river valleys – these valleys, however, do not rigidly follow the county lines and the plain somewhat overlaps these: consequently, the valleys tend to be bordered by high ground which does not follow the established river valley limits.
This particular photographic exhibition explores the traditional areas and those features on the limits; this gives the area its picturesque landscapes, historic industries, townships and villages.
Generally the area extends from Cross Fell in the west to just north of Hartlepool and as far south as Staithes taking in the Cleveland Hills around Stokesley, Guisborough and Hamsterly Forest.
For this exhibition photographers have been given free rein to interpret visually and with any photographic technique and media that they choose.
We hope you enjoy this exhibition as much as the photographers who produced the images.
