Our thanks and acknowledgements

We are indebted to Cynthia Rymer, our mentor, whose help and encouragement has been our inspiration.

This site is dedicated to the late Lesley Walker, Richard Harland and Alison Armstrong who all gave us invaluable help.

We are very grateful to the Cracoe and Rylstone Community Fund which has provided funding for the project and especially for the creation of this website.

Finally, we would like to say a 'big thank you' for the support and contributions of local residents in Rylstone and district, especially the Local History Group.
