There’s plenty to be said about modern day Skipton. Not only does it have some of the best restaurants in the region, a tremendous array of things to do and some wonderful independent shops to boot – its position as a place of historic insight is undeniable.
Around every corner you’ll find intriguing nods to the past, not least in the unavoidable castle which sits in its centre.
Although, of course there’s no footage of Skipton any further than a century or so ago, this video, which was shot by an amateur film maker gives a wonderful insight into the Skipton of the past… please enjoy!
