Dance Information

The Dalesman is a British monthly regional magazine, based in Skipton, and serving the English county of Yorkshire.

Its first edition was published in March 1939, under the original title of The Yorkshire Dalesman: A Monthly Magazine of Dales' Life and Industry. Although originally only serving the Yorkshire Dales, the magazine was soon expanded to cover the whole county of Yorkshire, with a particular focus on the countryside and over the years it has become a northern institution.

It remains the biggest selling regional consumer magazine in the UK and Yorkshire's best selling magazine (2019).

A Dalesman is a term used to describe a person from the Yorkshire Dales, or sometimes a person from the Lake District, a rural area in northwest England.
