The Parish of Satterthwaite – A Social HistorySuzanne Tiplady and Kevin BaverstockPublished by Saetrpress in 2014.
This book records the part played by the 49th (West Riding) Infantry Division in the day long defensive action at Rauray in Normandy on 1st July 1944. Among the British units which played a major role that day, particular mention is given to the 1st Tyneside Scottish (Black Watch). Renowned for their sacrifices in the First World War, little has been written about the men of the Tyneside Scottish in the Second World War, and, despite the fact that they gained a battle honour for their efforts at Rauray, their story has largely been forgotten.

This social history of the Parish of Satterthwaite records the life and times of the inhabitants of the settlements of Satterthwaite, Grizedale, Dale Park, Force, Graythwaite and Low Cunsey.
