The picturesque village of Thornton Dale was voted the prettiest village in Yorkshire at the beginning of the tourist era in the 1920s and '30s and was subsequently renamed the more resonant Thornton-le-Dale. The village has more competition for the title today and although still popular with tourists has not been unduly spoilt by being over commercialised with an excess of gift shops and other attractions. Situated on the fringe of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, it has some very attractive cottages in pleasant settings and more modern residences of great character. Together with an ancient market cross, stocks on the small village green and a pretty beck and streams, this is an iconic area of Yorkshire. Join Alan Whitworth on a nostalgic visual journey in Thornton-le-Dale Through Time.
