The Yorkshire Dales National Park warden and three colleagues, possibly volunteers, create way markers across Barden Moor, 1965. The markers are essential because they help ensure that walkers keep to the designated route across the land and therefore do not get lost or do not create erosion of the land. The warden, with his back to the camera, is Mr Wilf Proctor, Head Warden of the West Riding section of the Yorkshire Dales National Park between 1963 and 1970. Wilf identifies that the three other men in the picture were members of the Volunteer Warden Service. On the left is Mr George Scargill, and Mr Jack Collins is thrusting the sledge hammer. The third man to the right remains unidentified.
We use a high resolution 50 mega pixel Canon camera, mounted on a Guardian stand, which allows us to capture A0 plans comfortably without losing any clarity or definition. Plans larger than A0 are digitally stitched using Adobe Photoshop by experienced reprographic staff. Images are captured at a minimum resolution of 300dpi as TIFFS using Phase One capture software.
Paper copies at A4 and A3 size are printed on 120gsm high quality matt paper using good quality printing ink.
Paper copies larger than A3 (A2 up to A0) are printed on 170gsm high quality matt coated paper, using UV inks which do not fade or lose colour over time.
Photographs are printed on 300gsm satin and gloss paper.
