George Walker: The Ruddle Pit. Hand-coloured aquatint from The Costume of Yorkshire. 255 x 365mm. Published by Robinson & Son Leeds Oct.1st, 1813. This was originally issued in 10 monthly parts of 4 plates each from 1st August 1813 to 1 June 1814 with the exception of 1 May 1814. When the book was first published in 1814, the publisher had changed to Robinson Son & Holdsworth, so this plate is from the original part, not the book. Accompanied by the relevant text.
