“the dales way flowing between two hills”

DWwaymarkAt the first meeting in February 1991, to form the Dales Way Association, amonst the many objectives set out, the following was minuted: ” to look into the design of a Dalesway (sic) logo to be used as a waymark etc…..” David Walsh, one of the 7 individuals present, Kendal Ramblers Assistant Footpath Secretary, agreed to take on the task. His remit was ” text flowing between two hills”  At a meeting in July 1992, it was agreed that the text should be in lower case and DW to be two words. As the design was mainly as a letterhead, “It could only have ‘some similarity’ to a waymark.” It was decided that two versions should be produced, one for letterheads the other as a waymark. At the October meeting the logo was accepted and a different way mark would be developed. The question of obtaining copyright was out of the question as ” if someone copied it, we have no money to pay legal fees to defend it.
