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

If you've just joined us this month then an extra special welcome - hope you enjoy the web site.

This month we've again been out and about researching and shooting some great photos for the Yorkshire Visitors Guide.

I'm always being asked to suggest or recommend books about Yorkshire by people who intend to visit and also by friends who live here. I thought it might be a good idea to put together a page on the web site for everyone to read about those that I've read and enjoyed. I'll be adding reviews over time, so keep dipping in to find one that you like.

I've long held an affection for the little town of Knaresborough in North Yorkshire. It's a pretty place and well worth a visit.

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


Whats new on Yorkshire Visitors Guide?

Many books about Yorkshire have been written. Because I keep getting asked to recommend my favourites I've put them on a page of their own and will keep adding more as I find them. Yorkshire is, of course, many things to many people. Some are keen walkers. Others enjoy taking photos, while still others just love to read about different places and enjoy looking at photographs of beautiful landscapes. more here ...

I'm quite proud of the seagull photo - remember him from the last issue? Hope you don't mind if he gets another airing this month!

The market town of Knaresborough has grown, down through the centuries of the last millennium, around its strategically placed castle. Located high on the cliffs overlooking the deep ravine that has been cut, over millions of years by the waters of the River Nidd, Knaresborough Castle was built in the 12th century...

I'm still working my way through all the articles adding some links to practicle web sites that I think may help with the planning of your visit to Yorkshire. Things such as street plans and weather details, bus and train timetables and prices. Hope they prove useful!

Work is also still in progress on the online photo gallery where I will showcase and offer for sale some of my photos. There'll be some freebies there too - so don't miss it! Although the gallery will contain photos from many different locations around the world there will be many beautiful images of Yorkshire. Many full size versions of the pictures used to illustrate Yorkshire Visitors Guide will be available plus others not seen before. If you have a favourite - don't miss taking a look. As soon as the gallery is up and running I'll put some links to it from the guide. Watch this space!

As something special and, as a way to say thanks, for subscribers to Yorkshire Allsorts, I'll be including a link for you to download your favourite photo from a selection of those featured on the Yorkshire Visitors Guide
