East Yorkshire Village Visits is a collection of thirty studies of some of the East Riding’s most interesting communities and the events that shaped them. From Airmyn in the west to Easington in the east the rich variety of East Yorkshire’s villages, their heritage and people is represented in this fascinating book. This new volume is the sequel to The Villages of East Yorkshire, published by Blackthorn Press in December 2010 and like the first book is based on the popular ‘village visit’ series published by the glossy county magazine, the Journal, in Hull. The Journal’s ‘Village Visit’ series is now in its seventh year of publication and the author decided from the outset that he would focus his attention on social history, personalities, and interesting events to make the series as accessible as possible. The chapters in this new book use the original village visit articles together with new and previously unpublished historical material.
