Archive footage as well as more recent film gives us a taste of this most interesting area of England with its historic cities, industrial valleys and heather-clad moors. Starting in the historic city of York, our first visit is to the Minster with its rich history. The Minster itself has changed little over time despite the disastrous fire of 1984 that destroyed the south transept roof. York also provides us with interesting glimpses of the Shambles where the roofs of the buildings almost touch in the middle, the Multangular Tower which is the only Roman tower still in existence in the city, the railway station and the National Railway Museum.
From here we travel to the Victorian spa town of Harrogate, famous for its healing waters, before we head to the industrial towns of Leeds and Bradford and see the difference in types of vehicle on the road then with horse trams, steam trams, electric trams, haulier carts and bicycles. We then head off to Sheffield and get a glimpse of the steel industry in its heyday and then it's on to the Meadowhall Shopping Centre, built on a site previously owned by the steel works, before we finish our round up of this area at Goole, one of the most important ports in the east of England.
