Overview

Excerpt from Life in a Yorkshire Village (With Special Reference to the Evolution, Customs, Folklore and Legends of Carlton-in-Cleveland, This Village Being Taken as a Type)

At a day when, whether-to our profit or to our loss, so many familiar landmarks are disappearing from our ken, or are in course of transformation into something, perhaps rich, but certainly strange, it may not be presumptuous to hope that this unpretentious chronicle of Life in a Yorkshire Village, may be of some thing more than sentimental value. If the mirror these pages hold up to life is small, at any rate it re ects manv far-reaching changes in the manner of living and in outlook of life, in the tasks of labour and the manner of their accomplishment shifting ideas, new ideals it across it, it shows the slow tooth of time gnawing at and reshaping the customs, pastimes, philosophy, beliefs, and speech of our country folk.

It is with these the historian of the future, when he renders count of the mettle of our pasture, will have to reckon.
