111 Places in Yorkshire That You Shouldn't Miss Paperback / softback

Part of the 111 Places/Shops series

Paperback / softback

Description

They call Yorkshire God's own country. This is because England's biggest county is also England's most epic and most historically exciting.

It has everything: unimaginably beautiful countryside, derelict castles, cliff-hugging coastlines, brutally bleak moors, quirkily quaint villages, wondrously winding waterways and industrial monsters of cities.

Many of the most interesting episodes in English history have happened here: the Wars of the Roses, the English Civil War, the birth of the industrial revolution, the rise of the Labour movement.

But when people think of Yorkshire they also think of the unusual and the unsung: Bettys delightful tea rooms, cricket at Scarborough, the windswept steps of Whitby Abbey, the steam railway of the Railway Children, Mother Shipton's Cave, and racing at Doncaster and York. Yorkshire has also given birth to some of the greatest and most talented figures in English history: Brian Clough, Harold Wilson, John Wycliffe, William Wilberforce, the Bronte Sisters, David Hockney and Barbara Hepworth.
