Whilst there is now a wealth of research on current changes in climate, there are fewer studies of longer-term changes. This booklet is based on documentary records for the North York Moors from the fifth century onwards. Many of the records concern weather rather than climate and many are associated with flooding, e.g. particularly wet years, or farming, e.g. crop failures. Despite the varying level of reliability of the documentary sources, the records make fascinating reading and together they build up a picture of the changing climate of this part of North Yorkshire.
