Wulstan Atkins, godson of one of England’s greatest composers, has written:

“The magical Dalesman’s land captivated Elgar as a young man and richly enlarged his love of nature and the English countryside – a love that is reflected in all his music.” Elgar’s fifty-year-long friendship with Dr C W Buck, of Giggleswick, was important in his transformation from musician to composer. It also produced a series of jaunty letters relating to what Edgar described, affectionately, as “the mad days”.

Edward Elgar in the Yorkshire Dales is written by local author W R (Bill) Mitchell….Ref: 28
