Photographic Recording Project

Calling all keen photographers to join a project recording the many and varied archaeological and historical features across the South Pennine uplands!

The Watershed Landscape Project has set up a gallery on the Geograph website. The aim of the Geograph Project is to ‘collect, publish, organise and preserve representative images and associated information for every square kilometre of Great Britain, Ireland, and the Isle of Man.’

All you need is a digital camera and the Ordnance Survey grid reference for the feature that you are taking a photograph of. Then sign in to the Geograph website, upload your photographs, and add them to the gallery ‘Watershed Landscape Project – heritage of the South Pennines’. The collection remains available for you to upload your images. 

Don’t worry if someone else has already added a photograph of the same feature – the more the merrier. Photographs taken of the same feature during different times of the year and in different lighting conditions are really useful as different details are highlighted.
