Dalby: Valley of Change

by John Rushton and Brian Walker

In a deep Yorkshire valley, four miles north-east of the old market town of Pickering, a tiny village called Low Dalby nestles between pasture and forest.

John Rushton traces the history of Dalby from prehistoric times to the twentieth century. He describes the life of the valley under the Normans and Plantagenets when Dalby and surrounding areas were part of a royal forest, and explains the changes over subsequent years to mixed farming and finally back to forestry.

Originally published in 1976 as a guide for teachers, "Dalby: Valley of Change" has been out of print and unobtainable for many years. This revised edition with new illustrations includes an additional chapter by Brian Walker on the present-day life of the valley and its hopes for the future.
A5 size (210 x 148 mm). 160 pages. Card covers.
