Yorkshire Tails

We are one of the very few towers with a full set of Yorkshire Tails. There are only a few Ropemakers who can make Yorkshire Tails, but we intend being a 'Yorkshire Tails' tower for as long as possible.

For the benefit of none ringers, and some ringers, the Yorkshire Tail is the 'woolly bit' right at the end of the rope, held, usually, in the ringer's left hand.

At the latest count there were only seven towers known to have full sets. They were:-
  • Accrington
  • Bingley
  • East Marton
  • Kildwick
  • Mirfield
  • Mytholmroyd
  • Otley.
