Picture a winter's day, a century and a half ago, when the North York Moors donned its snowy coat, turning into a playground for the adventurous. Skiing and ice skating across the moors were popular pastimes, as recorded in our collection of photographs, as well as an innovative way of getting around in communities that could be ‘snowed up’ for months on end.
Whether you consider yourself the romantic or the practical type, these ice skates may make the perfect pairing, made from sturdy leather in a respectable size 9½. These well-crafted skates boast hinged clamps that securely grasp the front of the foot, ensuring a snug fit even as you glided across frozen ponds and lakes.
So, if you like to embrace the chill and glide through the winter season in style, then these might be the object for you.
