Paul, from Heckmondwike, said he had been making plans for his retirement.

He said: “I will hopefully be spending more time enjoying the great Yorkshire countryside – and improving my photography.

“For me it is the end of a memorable and challenging stint with Dalesman stretching back almost 20 years.”

He said he would continue to edit Dalesman’s national sister magazine The Countryman as a freelance from home.

Paul is succeeded by 34-year-old Adrian Braddy, who is only the sixth editor since the magazine was founded in 1939.
