Otley Town from the Chevin
Otley is a market town with a population of about 15,000. To the south of the town
is a ridge known as the Chevin from which extensive views of mid-Wharfedale can by
enjoyed. Thomas Chippendale, the world-famous furniture maker was born and learnt
his craft in Otley. Turner often stayed nearby, and used the Chevin as the backdrop
for at least one of his famous pictures (Hannibal crossing the Alps).
