This week’s film clip, courtesy of the Yorkshire Film Archive, is entitled The West Riding of Yorkshire, although it mainly shows places in Notrh Yorkshire during the early part of the 20th century. Destinations include Richmond Castle and the Waterfalls at Aysgarth.

The film shows a waterfall over a steep escarpment.

The film begins with a western view of the York Mnister. In the foreground, a car can be seen coming towards the camera. At the crossroads at the end of Lendal Bridge, a tram makes its way down Rougier Street. From the shot set atop the city walls, pedestrians can also be seen in the street as well as a cyclist and horse-drawn carriage. Groups of people also walk along the city walls. Now in the Shambles, a boy makes his way down the narrow street and past a cart.

The falls at Aysgarth are seen from seven different locations, following the river as it flows fiercely over the falls. The penultimate shot features a girl walking over the shallow rocks with the falls in the background. The film ends with people walking along by the river.
