Wensleydale & Coverdale Through Time documents not only how the towns and villages of two related Yorkshire dales have developed and changed, but also gives the reader an insight into how the lives of the 'dalesfolk' have altered beyond all recognition. Wensleydale is the larger of the dales, while Coverdale is a secluded miniature of its 'parent' and was once passed by the main route from London to the North. Following the rivers Ure and Cover from the stark beauty of the high dales eastwards down through the hay meadows and pastures to their convergence beyond Ulshaw Bridge, the beauty of these dales is all too visible. Themes include farming, cheesemaking, market days, transport, industry, the Church, the mail, horse racing, schools, public houses, tourism, notable characters, three abbeys and Middleham Castle (the home of Richard III).
