Tour YorkshireYorkshire: The West Riding (Pevsner Buildings of England S.) A vast area, incorporating most of present day South and West Yorkshire, the West Riding embraces the industrial landscapes of Sheffield and Barnsley, steel and coal, Leeds, Bradford and the Pennine valleys, engineering and wool, the beautiful sheep country of the Dales, and rich arable acres in the east, each of them with its own strong and distinctive building tradition. Of individual buildings, Ripon has the only English cathedral with substantial Saxon work surviving; Fountains Abbey, set in eighteenth-century landscaped grounds, is arguably the most beautiful ruin in England; twelfth-century Conisbrough marks the climax of the development of the keep in military architecture and the house at Wentworth Woodhouse manages, extraordinarily, to be both Baroque and Palladian at the same time. Huddersfield has an early railway station in the purest Corinthian, Leeds town hall embodies Victorian civic pride, while Halifax has the unique Piece Hall, a vast eighteenth-century cloth market.

History of YorkshireHistory of Yorkshire: County of the Broad Acres In such a large geographical area we find a great deal of diversity of experience and history. Life on the Pennines or the North York Moors has always been very different from life in low-lying agricultural districts such as Holderness or the Humberhead Levels. In many ways, the farmers of the Vale of York have had more in common with those the Midland Plain than with the miners, steel workers and textile workers of their own county. Until relatively recently people felt that they belonged to their own parish and to a wider neighbourhood which was bounded by the nearest market towns and which they called their 'country'. Relatively few people travelled to other parts of Yorkshire or had any contact with the 'strangers' who lived beyond their own district. Although the Elizabethan and Stuart gentry were conscious of belonging to Yorkshire, and outsiders made comments (usually adverse) on Yorkshiremen as a breed apart, ordinary folk did not have this sense of belonging to Yorkshire until quite late in its history. The success of the Yorkshire County Cricket Club from the 1890s onwards seems to have been the great stimulus that united Yorkshire people, and which gave them a sense of their superiority. The history of Yorkshire is more varied than that of any other English county. The changing fortunes of the many different regions of the county - from Pennine moors and valley towns to the flats of Holderness; from industrialised cities to quiet market towns - are a major theme in this important new book. Outsiders may recognise a Yorkshire accent, but local people can place a speaker much more precisely in a particular 'country'. It is this diversity of experience within the historic county of Yorkshire that David Hey seeks to capture in this important and fascinating new book..

YorkYork (Horrible Histories S.) Offers a whistle-stop tour of York's foul but fascinating history including details of the deadly diseases that plagued the city, why the vicious Vikings made such an impression and the truth about the criminal characters of Turpin and Fawkes. This title comes complete with a fold-out map that shows all the horrible highlights of the city.
