The recorded history of Wakefield goes back more than 1,000 years and the city has evolved and changed over the centuries. The extensive developments of the last three centuries, through the Industrial Revolution and a massive increase in population to today’s largely post-industrial city, have seen its most radical period of change.

A–Z of Wakefield delves into the history of this West Yorkshire city. It highlights well-known landmarks, famous residents and digs beneath the surface to uncover some of the lesser-known facts about Wakefield and its hidden gems. Significant moments in its history are covered as well as its notable buildings and other features, including famous names associated with Wakefield, from its medieval beginnings to the present day. This fascinating A–Z tour of Wakefield’s history is fully illustrated and will appeal to all those with an interest in this part of West Yorkshire.
