From the rear side cover: Starting and ending in the old Market Green, Cottingham Through Time takes you on a guided tour round 'England's largest village', with its handsome churches, elegant houses and old shops and pubs. Nearly 200 images, old and new, tell the story of this East Riding village and its people from medieval times to the present day. Medieval Cottingham, with its castle, deer park and priory, later developed into Hull's market garden and was the village of choice for rich Hull merchants to build themselves fine country houses. Mansions and paupers' cottages, watermills and windmills, schools and chapels, cow-keeping and horse breeding, steam trains and motor transport all figure in a kaleidoscope of historic images, showing what has changed and how much can still be seen and enjoyed today.

The book will thus delight anyone who has lived or grown up in Cottingham, as well as people with a more general interest in the social history of this part of the East Ridng and beyond...
