The North-East of England stretches from Northumberland, with its border with Scotland, right down to South Yorkshire and the mouth of the Humber. Yorkshire has undergone some reconstruction in recent years, with the ‘Ridings’ now gone to be replaced by the modern North, South, West and East Yorkshire. Needless to say, the Tykes (native born Yorkshire people) ignore this completely! Yorkshire is England’s largest county and its topography is diverse, from the moors to the dales and just about everything in between.
