This latest edition in the Denby & District series opens up in its own unique and in depth style. It begins with a chronicle of the area dating from Medieval times to the 18th century. Most of the documents utilised have never before been published and include a transcription of a petition signed by villagers to exonerate the Denby witches. The book’s scope is wider then ever before with extensive details on Skelmanthorpe and Cumberworth. Here examined are such subjects as the field n
manufacturing family and the evangelist, Issac Marsden. Extensive details from the 19th century include Denby Poor Law records, Turnpike Roads, the 1881 Census Returns and extracts from the Barnsley Chronicle 1876-1896, detailing the trials and tribulations of the locals at the time. The well known Denby Dale born actor, Paul Copley, also tells the story of his life and career. The book is packed with new and never before published information, photographs and family trees and is a must for anyone with an interest in the area.
