One of Jane Noble's photographs dominates the double-page spread introducing the article by Geoff Simpson
The article, entitled Swaledale lures Saville fans, gives an account of the visit by enthusiasts in June 2009 to Swaledale and their exploration of the settings Saville used for his final Nettleford book The Secret of Buzzard Scar.

Those who were present that summer day will recall the snow which covered the tops and the torrential sleet-ridden rain which greeted the walkers.

The article covers pages 82 to 84 inclusive and includes three photographs by Jane Noble showing soggy walkers with undampened enthusiasm, in Muker and by Crackpot Hall.
