Study Description 

Thoralby is a village in Bishopdale, which is a side valley of Wensleydale in the Yorkshire Dales. My website explores the history of Thoralby, the neighbouring small hamlet of Newbiggin and the scattered hill farms in the rest of Bishopdale from prehistory to the late twentieth century. The website provides a wide range of primary evidence about Thoralby, Bishopdale and Newbiggin.
