This is a charming compendium of historical oddities, curious customs, and strange events from across West Yorkshire. Laid out in an easy to use A-Z format it explores a vast range of subjects, from folklore and legends to Yorkshire's strangest buildings, artifacts, and memorials (including a drinker's tomb made from a beer barrel). Here also are some of Yorkshire's most eccentric characters and famous former inhabitants, and the stories behind some of the oddest events that have occurred in the county -- and perhaps even in the whole of the British Isles. With countless Civil War curiosities, tragic tales, and hilarious happenings, "tha couldna mak it up!" Richly illustrated with both modern and archive images, it will delight residents and visitors alike.
