After nearly two years in development, our new website is now live.  We hope that you enjoy discovering the society's many publications, activities, projects and wealth of resources.

The site is fresh from the workshop and you may encounter errors or difficulties we don't already know about - and if you do please accept our apologies and e-mail our editor.

Books for sale - and a classic image...

  • Posted On: 7 March 2018

If you're coming along to the industrial history day at Armley on Saturday - or to the YVBSG vernacular buildings event on 17 March at Headingley - please note: We'll be bringing along copies of YAHS's new edition of Life and Tradition in the Yorkshire Dales, for sale at £12 - and also I'll have some of my own new book, The Age of Machinery, at £15.
One photo that didn't find its way into Life and Tradition was this fine image of a young chap helping his uncle (the tractor driver) on his farm near Ingleton. It's Paul White of YAHS, who re-designed and edited the Hartley and Ingilby book for the society!
