Geography: Northallerton

Key points of interest in Northallerton, North Yorkshire, England. The second half of Northallerton’s name is thought either to derive from the name Aelfere, with ‘Aelfereton’ meaning ‘the farm belonging to Aelfere’ or even ‘of King Alfred’ or to have referred to the alder trees that grew in the vicinity. ‘North’ was added to the name in the 12th century to distinguish the town from the parish of Allerton Maulever, which lay several miles southward of the town (“Northallerton”, [s.d.]). QUOTATION Alan Hinkes, OBE, rose from his beginnings in Northallerton to become the first British mountaineer to have claimed ascent of all fourteen mountains, worldwide, with elevations greater than 8000 metres. In Taylor’s (2010) Mail Online report on the intrepid climber, he is reported as saying, “I’m blessed with certain characteristics that make me good at dealing with the cold, the suffering and the danger” (Taylor, 2010).
