A PERMANENT gallery highlighting the beauty of the Peak District National Park has been opened, featuring the work of local photographers.

Views of landscapes, farm animals, wildlife and plants are on display upstairs at Bakewell Visitor Centre in the Old Market Hall after the gallery was opened by the Duke of Devonshire.

It has been created by the Peak District National Park Authority not only to showcase the area, but also to help a new group of local professional landscape and wildlife photographers to sell their work.

The photographers are Ian Daisley, Graham Dunn, Karen Frenkel, Chris Gilbert and Alex Hyde.

Karen Frenkel said: “We are all passionate about the Peak District National Park and that’s why we have been out there in all weathers, at all hours, to capture its wonderful diversity.”
