    Dovedale is a valley in Derbyshire through which the river Dove flows. It is now owned by the National Trust but has always been a popular tourist attraction. It runs for about three miles from Milldale in the north to near Thorpe Cloud in the south. The interplay of the limestone geology of Dovedale, with its rock formations and the forms of the wooded areas, clearly captivated the artist.
