Regional title’s birthplace goes on the market for almost £700,000

A rural country home that was the birthplace of a regional title has gone on the market for almost £700,000.

Fellside, in the Yorkshire village of Clapham, was the former home of Harry Scott, who launched The Dalesman from there in 1939.

The house, from which Harry published and edited the regional title from 1939 to 1955, is now on the market for £695,000.

The Dalesman remained in Clapham until 2000, but has been based in Skipton since then.

Tom Galloway, from estate agent Dacre, Son & Hartley’s Settle office, told the Craven Herald: “Fellside is a beautiful house that oozes character and charm and is very homely.

“The property offers generous living space and impressive gardens, where you can sit and listen to the sound of running water flowing down Clapham Beck.

“Clapham has always been a highly sought-after village beneath majestic Ingleborough.

“It has a broad range of amenities including local shops and cafés, a village hall, public house, ancient church and is surrounded by stunning countryside, so it’s easy to see how it was the birthplace and inspiration for such a popular Yorkshire magazine celebrating God’s Own Country.”
