This website is an ADDENDUM to the book
“The Barden Biography: Memories of a small Wensleydale
It enables you to understand
why the book was written, how to order a copy, what new
details have emerged since publication, how you can contribute your
own story, to browse some 250 photographs, listen to some of the
voices of residents, and to study the details of the source material
In the book, each of the
longstanding Barden and Garriston families has given a personal
account of their past successes and setbacks. It includes hundreds
of names to jog your memory, many photographs, and a good measure
of humour too.
It should be fascinating to
anyone who likes walking down memory lane and will hopefully remind
the young people of their roots when they start ‘looking back’.
