Yorkshire - West Riding map - Framed Picture - 12" x 16"


The West Riding of Yorkshire is one of the three historic subdivisions of Yorkshire.

Unlike most English counties that were divided into hundreds, Yorkshire, being so large, was divided first into thrithjungar (an Old Norse word meaning 'third parts'), which were called the three ridings (East, North and West) and, later, the City of York which lay within the city walls and was not part of any riding.

Each riding was then divided into wapentakes.
