PREFACE.



HIGHKK WHARFEI.AND: THK DALE OF ROMANCK,

I''ROM OKMSCJ.IFFK TO CAM FM,I..
A COMPANION VOI.IMI-: TO I.O\VKR \\ HAKFKLANK.

IF any apology is needed for a preface to a companion volume, it will
be found in the necessary continuity of the subject the beauty of a river
valley that includes in its story not only great natural beauties of feature,
but the Washburn, the homeland of men such as Collyer, Fairfax,
Frankland, Parkinson, Pulleyne, and others, whose patronymics will never
be forgotten.

Its mid-reaches include Otley, Ilkley, and monastic Bolton, with all
its unrivalled beauty of situation, story, romance, and legend. Amerdale,
too, Wordsworth has rendered immortal in his White Doe. and Rylsfoti.

The higher reaches, even, are not devoid of significance, when there
is Hubberholme, with its rood-screen, and around and beyond that higher
fell-land of Craven, which, in its wild sweeping moorland, over which
the mist wreath, the spirit of the mountains, broods, everlastingly
appealing to the minds and hearts of men.
