Journey of The Aire

Portrait of a River


This full colour, casebound book is best described as both a gazetteer and souvenir of a hugely popular, hugely populated area reaching from the Yorkshire Dales to the Vale of York, and including Malham, Skipton, Keighley, Haworth, Saltaire, Bradford, Leeds, Pontefract and Castleford.

JOURNEY OF THE AIRE takes you on a 71-mile odyssey from limestone pavements above Malham to tranquil farmland near Goole, encountering a greater diversity of interest than any other Yorkshire river. Malham Cove, Skipton Castle, Haworth, Five Rise Locks, Saltaire and Kirkstall Abbey are visited by millions, yet spread liberally in between are untold equally fascinating locations, some local beauty spots, others barely known. Within these pages an informative text accompanies over 800 photographs portraying this remarkable landscape and all its riches. Towns and cities such as Leeds, Bradford, Keighley and Pontefract provide unexpected moments to contrast with villages like Rylstone, Ledsham, Stanbury and Thornton-in-Craven: add the delights of Shipley Glen, Fairburn Ings, Embsay Moor and theWorth Valley, and you're beginning to scratch the surface. All who have experienced the embrace of the Aire will savour this unrivalled record of one river's absorbing journey through the seasons, and be prepared to discover a few surprises along the way.
