The textile industry was an important part of Yorkshire’s economy for several centuries and has left an impressive legacy of mills and other buildings in the landscape, especially of the Pennines. This book, based on papers delivered at a conference in Burley-in-Wharfedale, focuses on the urban environments and landscapes that the industry has given rise to from the eighteenth century onwards.
