"The Settle District and North West Yorkshire Dales " was published in 1923 and is a guide book for the area, containing descriptions of walks and some drives in the district along with some history. There are descriptions of caves and potholes too, along with a bit of historical description of the exploration of these. This book contains over 200 pages along with some 35 plates (some drawings but mainly photographs).

In order to give you a better idea of the information in the book the following items are available here on line:

"Chronicles and Stories of the Craven Dales" was published in 1881. I found it to be a very readable book despite being 120 years old. Whilst there are not a lot of names in here, there is a lot about those who are to be found in here in general. A good idea of the information in the book is to be found in the introduction (see immediately below) written by Dr. Collyer of "Ilkley, Ancient and modern" fame.
