GEOGRAPHY OF THE YORKSHIRE DALES WEBINAR

Have you ever wondered why there are lots of waterfalls in Wensleydale, or where to find the best haymeadows in summer or how Pen-y-ghent got its name?

If you love the landscapes of the Yorkshire Dales but want to know more, then join Mark Reid on one of his online Geography of the Yorkshire Dales Webinars.

  • Geology, tectonics and glaciation – an overview of the physical geography of the Yorkshire Dales.
  • The 42 hills and fells of the Yorkshire Dales over 600 metres.
  • Human impact – settlements, place-names, dialect, land-use, grouse moors, industry, tourism… plus much more.
  • What makes the Yorkshire Dales special? Hay-meadows, drystone walls, history, lead mines, pubs… and where to find them.
  • The Yorkshire Dales National Park; its purpose and role.
  • Challenges for the future.
  • Opportunity to ask questions at the end

This Geography of the Yorkshire Dales webinar will introduce you to the key elements that make the Yorkshire Dales such a special place, with its topography and landscapes protected as one of the Britain’s 15 National Parks. This webinar will give you an overview and understanding of the Yorkshire Dales, how it was formed and shaped, and what makes it special.

The webinar will be richly illustrated with photographs and anecdotes from my many years of walking the paths, tracks, hills and dales. From the formation of the bedrock 500,000,000 years ago to the challenges of climate change and tourism today.

Our Geography of the Yorkshire Dales is suitable for everyone who enjoys the beauty of the Yorkshire Dales and wants to know more.

OUTLINE OF THE WEBINAR

2 hour Online Webinar with Mark Reid
During this online webinar with Mark Reid (via Zoom), we will progressively talk through and illustrate the Geography of the Yorkshire Dales from the laying down of the ancient basement rocks to the challenges of tourism and climate change today. There will be an opportunity to ask questions at the end.

Please note: There are lots of topics to cover. The idea is the ‘paint a picture’ of what makes the Yorkshire Dales so special, and why the topography and landscapes look like they do.
