A Westmorland History
Through extensive research in archive sources Martin Holdgate has compiled a fascinating, richly illustrated and and intensely detailed history of the small village of Hartley, just outside Kirkby Stephen.
A majestic sweep through more than two thousand years of history, this book charts the development of Hartley from a series of Iron Age farmsteads still visible as banks, ditches and platforms above the village, through the Romano-British period and the Early Medieval to the coming of the Norman barons after the Conquest and onwards into the 21st century.
