Leyburn Market Place

Turner passed through the market town of Leyburn around the beginning of September 1816 during his extensive tour of Yorkshire to collect material for Whitaker's history of York series. 

He did not actually sketch in Leyburn, but may have stayed in the town when travelling from Middleham to Constable Burton, both of which provided the subjects of sketches.

Wheelchair accessDogs accepted
