The Last Horseman

 Allendale is a small market town just south of Hexham.Separated from the busy Tyne Valley by steep hills the valley slumbers on top of many years of history. From the Romans, through to the Border Reivers and the coming of the lead mines this is an ancient land. And yet there are still reminders of the past here. One such reminder is the remarkable John Dodd's who still farms his land using Clydesdales. These photographs, courtesy of Danny Brannigan are a small reminder of a world which has slipped away over time.
