The Story of The Yorkshire Dales

Discover how the Dales were formed and how many of their most dramatic features, such as Malham Cove, Aysgarth Falls, Ingleton Waterfalls, White Scar and Ingleborough caves, have been sculpted by nature over hundreds of millions of years.

Interviews with experts help to bring this part of the story to life.

Many has also had an impact. Prehistoric hunters arrived here 11,000 years ago and since then, Celts, Romans, Saxons, Vikings and Normans have all left their mark on the landscape, language and culture of the region.

Man’s more recent influence on the Dales is illustrated by visits to Kilnsey Agricultural Show, the Grassington lead mining area and Wensleydale Dairy Products, home of Wensleydale Cheese.

The Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority provides an insight into the management of the National Park today.
