In & Around Pocklington Through Time is a fascinating journey through an unspoilt and relatively little known part of Britain. It takes in the towns of Pocklington, Market Weighton and Stamford Bridge, as well as some of Yorkshire's most delightful villages. Contrasting the old with the new, the book shows images from the early twentieth century juxtaposed with today's equivalents, all described by Paul Chrystal's informative captions.The region east of York leading up to the beautiful Wolds has played a significant part in British history, and has been touched in one way or another by some of our nation's most influential characters, not least William Wilberforce, David Hockney, Joseph Terry and William Bradley - all of this is covered in this unique and fascinating book, which will delight visitors and residents past and present.
