Curious Tales from West Yorkshire Paperback / softback
by Howard Peach
This is a charming compendium of historical oddities, curious customs and strange events from across West Yorkshire. Laid out in an easy to use A-Z format, it explores a vast range of subjects, from folklore and legends to Yorkshire's strangest buildings, artefacts and memorials (including a drinker's tomb made from a beer barrel).
Here also are some of Yorkshire's most eccentric characters and famous former inhabitants, and the stories behind some of the oddest events that have occurred in the county - and perhaps even in the whole of the British Isles.
With countless Civil War curiosities, tragic tales and hilarious happenings, `tha couldna mak it up!' Richly illustrated with both modern and archive images, it will delight residents and visitors alike.
