The Skipton Press Is One Month Old Today – Take A Look At Our Best Stories So Far!


Since starting The Skipton Press just one month ago, we’ve been dedicating our spare time to promoting all things Skipton and trying to enhance the community in our own special way. We are proud to have brought you some exceptional stories and have been amazed at the great response we’ve received from the public. We’re thrilled to have engaged with so many brilliant, talented and interesting people in the short time that we’ve been publishing.

In the short time that we’ve been live as a publication, we’ve published nearly forty articles, reached an audience of over 30,000 people via Facebook and have even appeared on Drystone Radio to talk about what we’ve been publishing. So with that in mind, we’ve put together a list of some of favourite articles so that those who may have missed them the first time round have a chance to revisit them and, in turn, thank all of our amazing contributors for their efforts which have allowed us to publish so many great stories! We couldn’t do this without you!
