Welcome to my personal tour of Yorkshire.
My name is David Ford and I live at Beckenham in Kent (UK). I have recently taken early retirement from my job as a Senior Electrical Engineer, involved in the design of electrical installations for offshore oil and gas platforms, and other petrochemical plants.

With some of my increased leisure time I decided to try and produce a web site showing many of my favorite places to visit in Yorkshire. I have been taking regular holidays there for the past 20 years and consider it to be one of the most beautiful counties in Great Britain.

Yorkshire is England's largest county, despite recent changes to its borders. The variety of landscape is immense, with beautiful dales, wild moors and ancient houses and abbeys.

It is no accident that Yorkshire has been the chosen location for a number of successful films and television series including 'Last of the Summer Wine', 'All Creatures Great and Small' and 'Heartbeat'.

My holidays are usually based in or close to the city of York. This is a very beautiful and bustling walled city surrounding York Minster cathedral, and provides an ideal base for touring both the North Yorkshire Moors and the Yorkshire Dales.

The Site

The site is divided into four main area's (see buttons on the left) and links to each item within an area are located below the page heading. For each place listed there are a few photographs and a short narrative describing some of my favorite features, together with the general location.

As an alternative there is an Index Map that can be used to navigate to the different locations. Links to various other site utilities including a selection of free wallpaper can be found at the top of this page.

The photographs have either been scanned at 150 dpi and saved as JPEG images, or downloaded from my Fuji Finepix F700 digital camera. They have been resized to 640 x 480 approx and compressed to about 70KB, to reduce loading time. The narrative is mostly my own, but facts have been collected from other sources.
