Yorkshire - England's Cradle of Christianity & One of Sam's Exotic Travels

Yorkshire has a fascinating and intriguing history dating back over 2000 years. Buildings by Romans, Vikings and Normans have been preserved as part of its cherished and colorful past.  From Captain Cook to King Arthur and medieval Kings, Yorkshire has placed an integral role in the history of England and the British Empire.  York, Roman stronghold and Viking capital, is one of Europe’s greatest medieval cities with the biggest Gothic Cathedral in northern Europe.

I visited Yorkshire in June 2006 with my daughter and family.  It was a great reunion and a great trip, with lots of sights to see.  Having seen almost all of the BBC series "All Creatures Great and Small" I was anxious to visit the Yorkshire Dells and towns which were the settings for the long running series.
