History Stuff

The North Riding of Yorkshire is one of the three historic subdivisions of Yorkshire. In 1974 both the administrative county and the Lieutenancy of the North Riding of Yorkshire were abolished, being succeeded in most of the Riding by the new non-metropolitan county of North Yorkshire.

The biggest county in England & Wales, North Yorkshire (in particular the North Yorks Moors) is the setting for the TV Series of 'Heartbeat'. It is also the home of this blog and the area I have worked for the majority of my adult life. Although rural and picturesque, even North Yorkshire is starting to suffer from the Great British underclass!
