Discovering Yorkshire's History (Paperback)
In this unconventional guide to the people and the places that played parts in Yorkshire's extraordinary history, author Len Markham takes the reader across the county and down the years. He retells the stories of many of the well-known sites and uncovers the intriguing, sometimes secret history of places that are rarely remembered and visited. Along the way he describes the careers of an exceptional cast of characters who made a mark for good or ill on the heritage of the county. Over 150 evocative sites are described and illustrated in this invaluable handbook.
