Yorkshire. It’s the biggest county in Britain and almost everyone’s heard of it. But this is Forgotten Yorkshire. The people in this book aren’t the famous names from history. This is a book about ordinary people.
“Fabulous!” – Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson, DBE, DL
“Loved the sub-footnotes!” – Seymour Clearly, Ossett Ophthalmics Ltd.
If you enjoy your local history ‘Fact-Lite’, you’ll love Forgotten Yorkshire and Parts of North Derbyshire and Humberside.
Dr. Eric K. Shipley has patiently assembled an alternative history of Yorkshire from the papers of the Sharp family and the archives of the Yorkshire Rhubarb Council and the Tripe Marketing Board. If you’ve ever been to Yorkshire, or merely dreamed of going there, this book is for you.
Some of it may even be true.
