The Yorkshire Dales is one of the most diverse and rich landscapes in the British Isles. Limestone interlaces with sweeping and rolling fells and dramatic peaks arise from its plains. Within are caverns that stretch for miles under the surface, emphatic flora and fauna that thrive in this unique environment and the hardiest of local folk who eke out a living in unison with their surroundings. This equilibrium is harnessed and interwoven by a revered heritage that not only stretches back hundreds of years but is retained, protected and celebrated today. In this book, we explore fifty of these magical places and discover what makes the the Yorkshire Dales a unique place to live, visit and be part of. See the majestic Skipton Castle and Skipton Canal, enjoy the splendour of Bolton Abbey, and take in the fascinating views and history from the Three Peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside. Compare this to the tragedy and triumph of Ribblehead Viaduct. Follow the underground routes overground at Clapham and Chapel Le Dale and find out the secrets of life in Dent, Malham, Settle and Gunnerside. Discover some of this area's secrets and treasures and learn the fascinating history behind them with this handy guide.
