A-Z of The Yorkshire Dales: Places, People, History by Mike Appleton
A breathtaking landscape and attractive small towns and villages draw many visitors to the Yorkshire Dales National Park. A huge variety of people, landscapes and wildlife can be found within its boundaries, from churches that acted as places of rest on long routes, pubs that doubled up as courthouses and Neolithic discoveries in the new extension of the park, to the longest, deepest and oddest caves in the region and rare flora and fauna – there’s plenty to discover.
A–Z of the Yorkshire Dales reveals the history behind the area, its streets and buildings, businesses and the people connected with it. Alongside the famous historical connections are unusual characters, tucked-away places and unique events that are less well known. Fully illustrated throughout, this book will appeal to all those with an interest in this spectacular corner of England.
