The Diary of Charles Fothergill 1805: An Itinerary to York, Flamborough and the North-western Dales of Yorkshire

A record of a young Yorkshire Quaker, of yeoman roots and bourgeois estate, in search of history, antiquities, folklore, customs and other phenomena of his native county for a projected 'Natural and Civil History' of Yorkshire: accounts of archaeological relics, scraps of local history, notes on economic life, on local dialect and nomenclature, and descriptions of flora and fauna.
