County of the White Rose

Ilkley moor and more in this idyllic travelogue of Yorkshire's dales, castles and minsters, and the historic city of York.

Documentary 1934 11 mins


This film seamlessly blends the natural and historical wonders of Yorkshire into a pastoral picture book. Whether it's the trickling streams of the dales, the ruins of Bolton Castle, or the antique streets of York, every shot is designed to yield a contented sigh in the viewer. Like most travelogues, the film is a mini cinema seat holiday from the realities of 1930s Britain, in which it was first released.
