Yorkshire Dales Reviews
YD1 Avoiding confusion Oct 30, 2010
The YD1 in the title is based on my intention to create a number of reviews about the Yorkshire Dales, of which this is necessarily the first.
A dale is a steep sided river valley and hence usually a named dale does not cover the full length of the river after which it is named but a (usually) highly scenic section.
Yorkshire has two National Parks, both of which include numerous dales. To the west of the county lies what is actually called The Yorkshire Dales National Park, while further east is the North York Moors National Park. From the little I have seeen of the latter, it well deserves the sort of treatment I am planning to give here, but I have not enough knowledge of the area to include it.
However I am not covering the exact area of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. I have never understood why the river Nidd was omitted for the National Park so it is added onto the Park to provide the area of coverage.
Beauty is not always logical so I am including Dentdale, which is in the Park but no longer in Yorkshire.
Part of the list God's own county - Yorkshire
