North Riding Of Yorkshire
_Coat of arms of North Riding_ County CouncilThe NORTH RIDING OF YORKSHIRE is one of the three historic subdivisions (ridings ) of the English county of Yorkshire , alongside the East and West Ridings . From the Restoration it was used as a Lieutenancy area . The three ridings were treated as three counties for many purposes, such as having separate Quarter Sessions . An administrative county was created with a county council in 1889 under the Local Government Act 1888 on the historic boundaries. In 1974 both the administrative county and the Lieutenancy of the North Riding of Yorkshire were abolished, being succeeded in most of the Riding by the new non-metropolitan county of North Yorkshire . The highest point in the North Riding was Mickle Fell at 2,585 ft (788 metres)

Cultural Region
In anthropology and geography , a CULTURAL REGION, CULTURAL SPHERE, CULTURAL AREA or CULTURE AREA refers to a geographical area with one relatively homogeneous human activity or complex of activities (culture ). These are often associated with an ethnolinguistic group and the territory it inhabits. Specific cultures often do not limit their geographic coverage to the borders of a nation state , or to smaller subdivisions of a state. Cultural "spheres of influence" may also overlap or form concentric structures of macrocultures encompassing smaller local cultures. Different boundaries may also be drawn depending on the particular aspect of interest, such as religion and folklore vs. dress and architecture vs. language. Cultural areas are not considered equivalent to _ Kulturkreis _ ( Culture circles)
