To complement our Life in the Iron Valley exhibition, featuring rare and early prints from Chris Killip and Graham Smith, join the team from Land of Iron for a photo walk around Skinningrove and create your own images, taking inspiration from two fantastic documentary photographers.

Meeting at the museum at 5pm, you will be able to view the Life in The Iron Valley exhibition after hours and speak to the team about the photos, hear stories from behind the scenes, and discuss the locations and subject matter of the images before you head out on the walk.

Up to three hours will be allocated to the walk, heading into the village, and noting the differences between the time the Killip and Smith images were taken and the Skinningrove of the present day.

The walks have been specifically timed to coincide with Golden Hour - the time of day when light is best for photography – and you will be able to take some wonderful pictures of your own.

There will be ample time to wander by yourself and grab some unique pictures of your own and the Land of Iron team will be on hand nearby to answer any questions you may have.

Walks will take place on Saturday 3rd August and Saturday 10th August between 5pm and 9pm.

On Thursday 15th August, we will have a social event at the museum where attendees of both walks can discuss the pictures they have taken and chat over refreshments. Attendees will be asked to email their images to us at Land of Iron ahead of the social so we can add them to a slide show presentation.

The walks will be led by Land of Iron’s Nick Wesson. Nick has freelanced as a photographer and writer and has had work published in national newspapers, magazines, and online.

As an enthusiast of documentary photography, Nick was involved in the creation of the Life in The Iron Valley exhibition and has insight into some of the stories behind the images.


Photography equipment will not be provided by Land of Iron. You will be required to bring your own camera or phone with photo capability.

Please wear suitable clothing and footwear. It will not be necessary to walk on rough and/or wet ground if you do not want to but waterproof shoes/boots are recommended. Please check the weather forecast on the day as, although it is summer, we do live in Britain and you never know. A waterproof jacket may be required.


The walk will be accessible to all but some locations may not be accessible to people with limited mobility.

Age Suitability

The walk is aimed for people aged 16+ but if you think your child will enjoy the evening, please use your own judgement.
