Overview

Excerpt from Sedbergh, Garsdale, and Dent: Peeps at the Past History and Present Condition of Some Picturesque Yorkshire Dales

The aim of the following pages is to indicate the leading features, and the leading features only, of an ancient and interesting parish - to concentrate in a single focus whatever is most noteworthy respecting its history, scenery, institutions, worthies, and present condition. So many things, which for generations have been associated with our parochial life are changing, or have changed recently, that the time seems opportune for putting them on record, before the existence of the old is entirely merged and forgotten in the new.

A limited space is an effectual bar to prolixity; and though I have overstepped the bounds originally assigned, I have been obliged to exclude many details which seemed to possess a fair title for admission. This will explain why, in the case of documents which are usually set forth in full, I have contented myself with a summary, an extract, or an allusion. I have, however, taken some account of all matters of primary and general interest which have come under my notice; and I trust that an intimate acquaintance with the locality has enabled me to select and combine judiciously, to correct occasionally, and to add something of my own invariably.
