If you want 21 minutes of sheer delight watch this You Tube film called ‘We of the West Riding.’

It also covers the Dales and Skipton and is an absolute gem filmed in 1945. Watch for the 3 dales girls at around 10 minutes – who were they?

It also shows the inside of the mills in Halifax and shows various members of a family who left the dales with their various hobbies.

There are also 120 more videos from the 1940s to enjoy!

Do watch it to the end, and for those who have never visited Yorkshire,
enjoy!
