Charles Fothergill’s diary of his travels through Yorkshire in 1805 provides a remarkably vivid impression of the county at the height of the Romantic Movement. The spontaneous record of a young Quaker’s impressions of his native Yorkshire, this ‘itinerary’ of visits from York to Flamborough and to the north-western dales was made in preparation for a never-completed ‘Natural and Civil History’ of England’s Largest county.

Here is a writer who imagines the society and scenery of the Yorkshire Dales as Turner painted them.
