This book is a unique record of a journey along the beautiful and often dramatic Yorkshire coastline, tracing the region's diverse industry, the history of its settlements, seaside resorts and fishing quays, and reflecting upon the different uses to which man has put the resources where sea and land meet. The area's rich variety of towns and landscape, its ancient fortifications and modern harbours are all featured, but it is above all the unusual, the hidden and the bizarre that this book reveals. Whether the scene be dramatic or everyday, whether the site be well known or unfrequented, Along the Yorkshire Coast offers a new perspective that will surprise and delight both those familiar with the area and the tourist or traveller just passing through. With a blend of photographs, fact, folklore and social history, David Brandon offers a fascinating and evocative look the county's local history, and should capture the imagination of anyone who knows the places that are featured.
