In the Hambleton District of North Yorkshire, betwixt the Vales of Mowbray and York, one can find the charming town of Northallerton. Though the population of the city is hardly above fifteen thousand, nobody would mistake Northallerton for being a dull town. The city is one of the most important retail centers in all of North Yorkshire and has been an essential town for transport and trade ever since the 1700s. Northallerton is also very important to the agricultural trade and farming has long been one of the city's trademarks.
The city has been continuously inhabited ever since the height of the Roman Empire but it wasn't until the Middle Ages that Northallerton was anything more than a humble market burg. King William the Second placed the city under control of the Bishop of Durham and, unfortunately for the Bishop, the city became infamous almost overnight. Battles between England and Scotland were frequently waged on the beautiful, grassy hills. In 1138, Northallerton and its surrounding area were home to the incredibly deadly Battle of the Standard. This fateful day saw the loss of over twelve thousand lives. Fortunately, Scotland and England put aside their qualms in the ensuing decades and by the turn of the 19th century Northallerton was one of the most popular stopping points for coaches who were traveling from Scotland to London and vice versa. When the Industrial Revolution swept across Europe not long after, Northallerton continued to be a popular station in between the two destinations, though the coaches were of course replaced with railways and trains.
Perhaps the most interesting of Northallerton would be the fact that, despite its small-town reputation and its somewhat rural placement on the map, the city is well-known for its dedication to the pursuit of education. This has been another trademark of the city ever since the opening of the highly esteemed Northallerton College in 1322. Though it started out as a simple grammar and music school, the College quickly grew in esteem and by the 1700s it became the lauded education center that it still is today, graduating such noble alumni as Thomas Rymer, George Hickes, and Thomas Burnet. By the 1800s, however, many feared the demise of these hallowed halls as low enrollment figures were plaguing the income of the College. Much of this had to do with the fact that Northallerton College excluded female students and many of the boys in the town were busy in the farms during the city's agriculture boom. Luckily, legislation was passed in 1902 that allowed girls to attend the school, allowing it to see yet another century through.
As it stands today, Northallerton is still the busy market town that it has always been. It also remains one of the foremost agricultural cities in the region as well as an important stopping point from London to Scotland, as it has been for centuries. Though time marches on incessantly, Northallerton remains one of the few cities in the area that hasn't been unrecognizably altered by technology or age. This is a testament to the unerring love that the residents have for their beautiful town.
