The counties of North, South and West Yorkshire, Cleveland and Humberside form a region of great diversity, characterized by its long coastline, the rolling country of its hills and dales, its industrial conurbations and its wild moorland spaces. But the region has maintained a sense of integrity which seems as much a state of mind as a geographical or administrative reality. From Rudston Monolith to Skidby Windmill, from Wharram Percy to the Humber Bridge, from the abbeys of Riveaulx and Fountains to the industrial village of Saltaire, and frequently returning to the abundant heritage of York - this illustrated book guides the reader through a wide range of sites and settlements which bear testimony to the region's rich history. This book should be of interest to architectural historians, archaeologists, tourists and local people.
