From the rear side cover: Easingwold and the area around it exude history and beauty in equal measure. This book paints a picture of the town and its surrounding villages through old and contemporary photographs to show how far things have changed here, over the passage of time. The images are supported by concise, informative captions which delineate the history and development of the places, buildings, businesses and people in the photographs and documents.
The book features Easingwold, Ampleforth, Coxwold, Byland, Wass, Crayke, Kilburn, Husthwaite, Brafferton, Helperby, Sheriff Hutton, Sutton-on-the Forest, Tollerton, Raskelf and Myton-on-Swale. This unique journey takes in many aspects of Easingwolds history as well as the stories behind Ampleforth Abbey and College, Laurence Sterne at Coxwold and Sutton, the White Horse and Robert Thompson at Kilburn, the White Battle and the von Bismarks at Myton, and much more. The result is a beautifully illustrated and informative book which shows Easingwold and the surrounding villages at their best, through the passage of time.
The book will delight anyone who has lived or grown up in the North Yorkshire town, as well as people with a more general interest in the history of this area in times gone by....
