GARGRAVE: Geographical and Historical information from the year 1750.

"GARGRAVE, a parish in the West Riding of Yorkshire, a pretty pleasant T. near Winterburn, bet. Settle and Skipton in Craven, divided by the r. Are, which abounds with fish, " and has such a " winding course (says Camden) through the " Ings bet. this and Skipton, and " sports so in meanders from its very " source, as if it was undetermined " almost whether to run to the sea, " or back to its fountain for I was " forced to cross it, in my direct road, " no less than seven times in half an hour." This place is the yearly rendezvous of the gentlemen of Yorkshire and the adjacent Cos. for the hunting season."
