Yorkshire possesses within its boundaries many different landscapes - each with their own identity. In "Yorkshire Encounters" Lin Watts has chosen seven of them and devotes one chapter to each. Together, these seven journeys encompass the areas of Yorkshire that are most popular with visitors. For the first journey a "potted history" of the author's "second home" in North Yorkshire, a one-thousand year-old feudal Manor House and its immediate area, is used to illustrate the impact some of England's history has had on its peoples down the centuries. Subsequent journeys take the reader through the Vale of Mowbray, over the North York Moors and on to the sea down the North Yorkshire and Cleveland Heritage coast, encompassing along the way the lives of the world-renowned Bronte sisters of Haworth in West Yorkshire. The journey then moves through Wensleydale and beyond, using the course of the river Ure until it merges with the river Ouse, which flows on to our final destination of York. Throughout the last century, Yorkshire has been centre stage to some of the most fascinating episodes in England's political and social history and those intriguing events are pinpointed here.
