Yorkshire Dales 60th Anniversary by Colin Speakman (Author)
RRP £16.99 Our Price £15
This remarkable book is a unique celebration of some of the world's most glorious landscape and its people. It looks at how the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority has protected a unique environment over the last 60 years from shaky beginnings in 1954 through to its many present-day achievements. Future challenges are not neglected.
The farming theme is taken up in a fascinating chapter by 'guest author' Anthony Bradley, a working farmer, who looks constructively at the issue of maximising food production while at the same time meeting visitor and conservation needs.
The many photographs capture the glorious variety and ever-changing light of the Dales landscape and include some wonderful archive images from the 1950s.
