Bolton Abbey, Jewel of the Yorkshire Dales

August 24, 2011

Growing up in the Lancashire-Yorkshire borderlands I quite often found myself crossing the Pennine watershed from the red rose into the white rose county. One of our frequent outings was to Bolton Abbey. As a child, following in the footsteps of former generations, I did exactly what the children are doing in the photograph above […]

Who said Yorkshire was all smoke?

July 27, 2011

One of the great mistakes made by people who know of the northern counties of England as the cradle of the industrial revolution, but have never visited, is to assume that they are “wall-to-wall” blackened dereliction. Not one bit of it! I must protest, and often do, at such caricatures. Not only do we have […]

Flamborough Head, Yorkshire

July 2, 2011

The Yorkshire Coast at Bridlington

February 5, 2011

I haven’t written here for a few days but while sorting through some photos I came across this one that I took while on a few days’ break in Bridlington last April. All too often the northern counties of England are portrayed as full of smoke-blackened mills and abandoned coal mines, but this is far […]

Roads and Trackways of The Yorkshire Dales

January 12, 2011

Last night, while scanning my shelves, I came across a book that I must have bought around twenty years ago, Roads and Trackways of The Yorkshire Dales, by Geoffrey N. Wright. I couldn’t recall reading it before so spent an hour or so, with everything except eyes under the duvet, reading the first few chapters. […]

Janet’s Foss, near Malham – Image via Wikipedia With the beginning of 2010 not only am I expanding the blog to cover a wider area of the North of England (see my post about the changes at Around-England 2010) but I’m also starting a series of news updates about different areas of the region which […]
