Yorkshire - The White Rose County
"There are reasons why Yorkshire people are very proud. Yorkshire is the most sublimely beautiful place - it's BIG and because it's big there's a grandeur you don't get anywhere else. It's a stimulus which inspires greatness." - Quote from Michael Parkinson - Yorkshireman

Yorkshire is also home to TV favourites like "Emmerdale", "Heartbeat", "Last of the Summer Wine" and "All Creatures Great and Small". North Yorkshire is one of the four 'Ridings' of Yorkshire - England's biggest county. The County of Yorkshire being divided into North, South, East and West ridings. The County Town of York is located in the North Riding.

Swaledale
Swaledale  - considered to be one of the most picturesque valleys in this stunning part of England - cuts westward from Richmond into the North Pennines for 26 miles to the Dalehead below Ravenseat and above Keld on the Pennine Way.

It is wonderful country for walking with the Pennine way crossing the dale and the Coast to Coast walk running over the Pennines and down the dale through Richmond on its was East.

The majority of Swaledale is within the boundaries of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and is traditionally reliant on livestock farming as most of the land is too hilly and the soil too poor for arable crop production.
Tourism is now the key industry for the survival of the inhabitants of Swaledale. Swaledale is famous for its hardy breed of sheep and the spectacular wildflower meadows which are a blaze of colour in June and early July. A deep and winding valley, this is an ideal spot for those who wish to forget the pressures of the twentieth century

Richmond
Richmond is a beautiful market town in rural North Yorkshire.
It is located on the banks of the river Swale, at the mouth of Swaledale. Founded by the Normans in 1071 the town grew up around the castle built on the 'riche-mont' or 'strong-hill' that gave the town its name and whose massive keep dominates all other buildings around.
