Yorkshire's old East Riding has had a rich and varied past, and Martin Limon's second collection of historical stories is filled with more of the remarkable people, places and events that have made it that way. This volume contains stories of the East Riding's most famous residents of the past, including William Wilberforce and Amy Johnson, alongside some forgotten aspects of the region's past - including the crime that shocked eighteenth-century Long Riston and health care in the area before the arrival of the NHS. Meticulously researched by Martin Limon, who writes for local publications such as the "East Riding Gazette", "Down Your Way" and "Yorkshire Ridings Magazine", this book features many of his most popular articles to date, as well as others which have never before been seen in print.
