AMANDA Owen, star of The Dales, ITV’s popular series, and author of her best selling The Yorkshire Shepherdess, will release her 2015 calendar on September 5. The mother-of-seven, pictured, shot to fame when her life on the wild and remote 2,000 acre hill farm, Ravenseat in Swaledale, was televised.

The calendar, featuring her own photographs, gives fresh insights into the life she leads with her husband and family in one of the most inaccessible places in the UK.

Amanda said: “Life at Ravenseat isn’t easy. Winter is beautiful, but can also be bleak and harsh. This is balanced by the joys of spring and early summer, with lambs being born and the birds returning. “Im delighted to be able to share my life on the hill farm, and show people a way of life I love.”

The calendar will be available online at
