This fascinating selection of photographs traces some of the many ways in which Richmond and the villages Swaledale have changed and developed over the last century. Richmond is one of the most scenic towns in Britain; Swaledale is one of the country s most beautiful and inspirational rural areas.

This book paints a picture of Richmond and some of the nearby towns and villages through old images and modern photographs and shows particular parts of the town and dale at the end of the nineteenth and the early twentieth century and how these same places look today in 2010. The magnificent castle, the bustling market place, the Georgian Theatre Royal, the military influence of The Green Howards and nearby Catterick; and Greyfriar’s and Culloden Towers all of these are captured here along with Marrick Priory, The Hospitaller Order of Saint John of God at Scorton, and the awe-inspiring Buttertubs Pass. The result is a beautifully illustrated and informative book which shows Richmond & Swaledale Through Time.
