Les Hutton here. I'm the person behind the web site. I'd like to warmly welcome you to Yorkshire Allsorts - my free monthly e-zine.

Time for issue number two already. Time is really flying by! Yorkshire is really winding herself up for the new season and donning her Spring colours. Everywhere is looking fresh and expectant!

I've been able to get out and about over the Easter break and shoot some great photos for the Yorkshire Visitors Guide.

You'll find a new article about Yorkshire's very own World Heritage site - Saltaire. There are some really lovely photos to let you see a little bit of this hidden gem.

I've also added a section about Yorkshire's stately homes and to date you'll find articles about Harewood House and Castle Howard - two of the most stately of stately homes! No photos for these two yet, I'm afraid - but I hope to fix that before too long.

I really want you to enjoy reading Yorkshire Allsorts and I hope you find something - an idea or thought, perhaps - to take away from each issue.

Warm regards

Many of its buildings have an Italianate air to them. Indeed the mill chimney is modelled on the campanile of a church in Venice!...Full article

I've started a new section to write a little about some of the famous stately homes of Yorkshire. Two of the grandest are featured so far ...

Yorkshire's Grandest Stately Homes

The Stately Homes of Yorkshire were built on a truly grand scale. Land and wealth were inherited by the fortunate few ruling families. Passing down from generation to generation or crossing family boundaries by marriage. Ever grander ancestral homes were designed to celebrate the mighty power of the landed gentry and to demonstrate the successful business acumen of their owners ... Full article
