Event Summary

Many of us will have fond memories of holidays at the seaside resorts of the Yorkshire Coast and a new book by local author John Heywood will undoubtedly bring those memories to the fore.

John is an experienced professional family and local historian living in West Yorkshire. History has been his passion for over forty years. His first book Silent Witnesses told the story of those men from Horbury who paid the ultimate price during the Great War. His latest book Beside the Seaside - A History of Yorkshire's Seaside Resorts was a great labour of love to research and write and he'll be sharing stories from the book at this talk.
