by John William Morkill (originally published 1933)

In aid of the St Michael the Archangel, Kirkby Malham, Restoration Campaign, a limited, second edition of this very scarce local history of Kirkby Malhamdale has recently been republished by subscription. The whole edition wass limited to only 250 numbered copies and was printed by Smith Settle of Otley who specialise in high quality book reproductions and craft bindings.
Written by the late John William Morkill of Newfield Hall, it is a well researched book which has stood the test of time due to the author’s painstaking research using original documents. From before Domesday to the mid 19th Century, the text is packed with information extracted from deeds, manor rolls, parish records and other documents, plus material on the major families of the Dale. It should prove fascinating to those with Malhamdale connections or an interest in the local history of Craven and become a collectors item in its own right.

The initial subscription level was reached and all the half leather and full leather bound versions have been sold. Now only a few copies of this high quality facsimile edition are still available, and these are in the library edition bound in maroon cloth covered boards as in the original printing and with a reproduction of the rare original dust jacket.
