Yorkshire's Strangest Tales : Extraordinary but true stories, Paperback / softback Book

Yorkshire's Strangest Tales : Extraordinary but true stories Paperback / softback

Part of the Strangest series

Paperback / softback

Description

Welcome to the weird and wonderful world of Yorkshire, or as it is sometimes beautifully referred to, God's Own County.

Though this isn't the usual side of the county the tourists, travellers and residents see.

This is the real Yorkshire, the strange and twisted nooks and crannies of the county's bizarre history - past, present and future.

Following on from the bestselling Portico Strangest titles now comes a book devoted to one of England's most beautiful valley regions.

Located in the upper body of Britain's old man, Yorkshire is a county with more strangeness than you can shake a Dale walking stick at.

Home of Robin Hood (he was born in Barnsdale), Guy Fawkes, Dick Turpin and Dracula (Bram Stoker wrote part of the vampire tale in a Whitby hotel!) and, some say, the birthplace of modern civilization even began in Leeds!

But you'll have to read the book to find out why. Yorkshire's Strangest Tales is a treasure trove of the hilarious, the odd and the baffling - an alternative travel guide to some of the county's best-kept secrets.

Read on, if you dare! You have been warned.
