Sourced from family albums and council archives, this fascinating collection of over 200 photographs offers an intriguing insight into the changing history of Ripponden and the Ryburn Valley. With champters on mills and dams, sport, leisure, schools and pubs, this book records every aspect of life in the villages of Rishworth, Barkisland and Ripponden. From the old packhorse bridge to the silk-spinning Kebroyd Mills and Bentley's tantalising tripe restaurant, the locations where residents have worked, worshipped and played for more than a century are captured here. Telling of the Ripponden woman with more than 300 great-great-grandchildren, 'Stocking-Knitting Bob' and other builders of Boothwood Dams, Ripponden and the Ryburn Valley provides a vital record of the town and some of the unique people who have lived there in the past. It is sure to stir memories in the minds of anyone who knows the town; for others who do not, it will provide a rare glimpse into Yorkshire's past.
