Trough of Bowland
The Trough of Bowland is Lancashire's 'hidden gem'. This beautiful region remained largely inaccessible to the casual tourist until well into the 20th century - indeed, many still bypass the Trough in favour of the well-worn delights of the Lakes or Dales. Shaw explored the area fully and most of his photographs show bleak tracts of moorland which have remained completely unchanged up to the present day.
