Brand New Book

This book is a fascinating pictorial history of the villages of Newport and broomfleet in the East Riding of Yorkshire, and it is packed full with lots of wonderful black and white photographs showing the people, buildings and streets of the area in decades gone by.

From the rear side cover: This comprehensive book is a pictorial history of the communities at River Bridge on the banks of the Market Weighton Canal, which cut through and drained Wallingfen. The volume recalls life as it once was in Newport and the surrounding villages between Howden and the Wolds, including Broomfleet, Faxfleet and Brantingham.

Compiled with over 150 archive images, this fascinating collection provides a glimpse into the history of this part of east Yorkshire during the last two centuries, featuring images of important buildings and places of worship, transport and local businesses, as well as the people who have lived and worked here. Accompanied by supporting text offering a wealth of historical information, the pictures recall the rural setting of the area, its subsequent commercial, industrial and maritime heritage and its return to the rural scene as both fanning community and commuter village.

This book will reawaken memories among older residents, whilst offering newcomers an opportunity to look at how things used to be.

The book will delight anyone who has lived or grown up in either village, as well as people with a more general interest in the history of this part of East Yorkshire and beyond in decades gone by....
