Many characteristics of the Yorkshire Dales alter day by day, changing with the seasons, the weather and the hour-making the area an ideal destination for the walker. The unique limestone landscape encompasses vast expanses of high, lonely moor and respectable-sized hills, but it is the intricate web of valleys such as Wharfedale and Swaledale that gives the area its name. The Ice Age was crucial in moulding this landscape of wet upland bog to lush riverside meadows, green valleys and verdant woodland. Spectacular waterfalls are another typical feature and this guide visits those at Aysgarth, Hardraw, Burton Force, Mill Gill and Catrigg Force

The landscape and people are the two most distinctive qualities of the Yorkshire Dales, and this book employs new sources and methods to help the reader see both in a different light. In earlier centuries, religious and social factors influenced the first names that were given to children. Distinctive surnames were inherited, and their expansion or decline can throw light on local communities, on migration and population growth. Place-names emerged from regional and customary practices that illuminate topography, husbandry, mining, communications and much more. Thebook also uses material from Quarter Sessions, title deeds, wills and other documents to investigate a wide range of topics that touch on the lives of individuals and families, from religious dissent to sheep-stealing and vagrancy. There is emphasis too on the poor, showing the impact on families and communities of bastardy, fire, flood, violence and other disasters. A book written for anyone interested in the local and family history of the Yorkshire Dales.

Written with the general reader - the walker, the lover of the countryside - firmly in mind, this beautifully photographed record opens the door onto a fascinating story of ancient oceans, forests, shallow seas, and ice. Over millions of years, the stunning limestone landscape has been laid down at the bottom of tropical seas, deformed by movements in the earth's crust and shaped giant glaciers and, in our own time, the simple effects of rivers and rain water. Told from an expert geologist's perspective, this book will reveal the secrets behind its evolution, opening up an amazing new perspective for anyone who loves this wild and magnificent area.
