Upper Wharfedale

£9.99

Product description

Publisher's description: "The river Wharfe runs through some of the most picturesque landscape in Britain, but it has also had a long and eventful history. The most comprehensive work on the area is Harry Speight's Upper Wharfedale. First published in 1900, it is greatly valued by historians and general readers alike. Still acknowledged as the definitive guide to the lands around the Wharfe from its original in Langstrothdale through to Otley, Upper Wharfedale details the histories of the many towns and parishes: from Buckden and Kettlewell in the north through Grassington and Burnsall, to Ilkley and Otley in the south.
Harry Speight spent many thousands of hours walking in Wharfedale, noting everything of interest. The combination of detailed research and his own personal views on Wharfedale's scenery, customs and characters, has never been bettered making the book both readable and an invaluable source of information. The essential companion for the tourist, for the local historian and genealogist, and for the general reader, Upper Wharfedale will be a handsome edition to any bookshelf. "
Reprinted 1988 with an introduction by James Carpenter.
Includes maps and black and white illustrations.
The dust jacket is slightly faded but in other respects the book is in very good condition.
