Easingwold's History Vallis Eboracensis: Comprising the History

Vallis Eboracensis: Comprising the History and Antiquities of Easingwold and its Neighbourhood. Volume 2 First published in 1852, this was reprinted in 1974. It is extracts from “the complete Vallis Eboracensis [and] contains the Easingwold Section, [and] Forest of Galtres Section ...”. It is illustrated and the Easingwold Section takes the town’s story up to the date of publication. There are population figures for 1851, descriptions of nonconformist places of worship and the author dwells upon Easingwold’s reputation as a healing place. There was an “abundance of springs” there the writer said; “and water of the most pure and refreshing as well as sanative character abounds”. What was it like? “It most resembles the Cheltenham Waters and has a ferruginous taste, exciting the appetite, and ... recommended for the removal of gout and rheumatism.” Most of Vallis, however, deals with earlier periods than when the waters were recommended and the work is a highly entertaining and informative introduction to the history of Easingwold.
