Yorkshire is hard to pin down and, as this book shows, there are many 'Yorkshires'. There's the Yorkshire of whippets and pigeons and flat-caps and other stereotypes. There are the milltowns still reeling from the collapse of major industries. Then there is the new dynamic, forward-looking Yorkshire and much more.

Perhaps not as well known as the Yorkshire Dales, the Yorkshire coast is one of the glories of the county of the Broad Acres. This title takes the reader on a journey of discovery through its most notable features, such as the fishing villages of Whitby, Robin Hood's Bay and the seaside towns of Scarborough and Bridlington.

Most of the details of village life came from my own personal experiences. When, at the beginning of the war, my parents moved to a suburb of Leeds, called Lower Wortley it had just been incorporated into the boundaries of the city but still retained a lot of the air of a village about it. We, my family and I, lived in a small leaky sandstone cottage, one of seven, halfway up a hill. Right behind us there was a smallholding, where the farmer raised chickens, ducks and pigs. On the opposite side of the road we lived on, there was a row of rather grand four story houses, at the head of rather long equally grand gardens. The owners of which looked with distain upon their neighbors across the way. At the top of the hill was another group of houses set in a circle with a Methodist Chapel in their midst and the whole area was referred to as the Bull Ring. At the bottom of the hill was the main road into Leeds. Here was the Tram terminus, (Public Transport) with a switch over line to facilitate change over to the inbound line. It was a seriously bleak time, when Britain was on the defensive, and looked as though it was about to be invaded by the Germans at any time. So we sang songs to cheer ourselves up. “There’ll be blue birds over the white cliffs of Dover.” “There’ll always be an England, and England shall be free.” And silly songs like “I’m going to hang out the washing on the Siegfried Line. (A line of fortifications on the German border) So when I wrote “Little Miracles,” and compiled “An Englishman’s tales of a small Yorkshire village,” to go with it and I incorporated many of my experiences from this time. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did writing it.

Published for the Yorkshire Archaeological Society in 1903, this second volume of a two-volume survey sets out to collect and put into historical context the extant documentation relating to the foundation and early history of seven Yorkshire schools: Pontefract, Howden, Northallerton, Acaster, Rotherham, Giggleswick and Sedbergh. Although none is as ancient as the three cathedral schools surveyed in the first volume, the documentation - the earliest of which is typically in Latin, while later documents tend to be in English - extends from 1139 and the founding of Pontefract Grammar, takes in Rotherham College from its foundation in 1483, and includes a full record of Sedbergh School, from its genesis in the 1520s through its re-establishment in 1551 and up to the end of the seventeenth century. Arthur Francis Leach (1851-1915), dubbed 'the father of the history of education in England', provides an introductory narrative to accompany these primary sources.
