Pubs in and around the Yorkshire Dales by Paul Chrystal

Pubs in and around the Yorkshire Dales by Paul Chrystal sounds like a very interesting book, read just before the Summer, so I can pick up some pretty lovely locations to go to in our days out in the Dales. Who knows, I might create a pub crawl for my husband and I to enjoy on a sunny day in a couple of months.

The book(let) is written by a Yorkshire historian. He has an extensive experience in writing about local places, his many books include less known destinations in the British Isles.

He shares many interesting details about the pubs and there are some pictures as well. I found this book by chance, when I was picking up another book from the library and I borrowed it. I’m very glad I did and I would like to look for more books by him and read a bit more about the places I’m going to often.

The main reason I picked the book is that I like to discover old pubs with a fascinating and rich history, most of them owned by families or small businesses. A couple of years ago I did a challenge, to go for a drink or a meal to a special pub each month and I loved it so much that I’m still looking out for special pubs. I’d rather have a cup of coffee in an old pub than a modern coffee chain or another. This book helped me discover some pretty lovely places that I’m very eager to go to.

About the author: Paul Chrystal is a historian. He wrote many books, including: Tea: A Very British Beverage; A History of Chocolate in York; Secret York; Roman Women: The Women Who Influenced the History of Rome; Secret Middlesbrough; Hartlepool Through The Ages; Hull Pubs; Knaresborough Through Time.
As you can see, most of them are regarding local history and, unless you live nearby you might not have heard of these places. I would like to read some of his other books, as I’ve been to Knaresborough and York many times and also went on holiday this year to Hartlepool and Middlesbrough.
