One comment on “Skipton”

Skipton is home to a medieval castle, one of the best preserved medieval castles in England. Skipton means ‘sheep town’ in old English. It is the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales. You would have to get used to the strong local Yorkshire accent here if you were moving to Skipton, it can be quite difficult at first to tune in to the local dialect.
