An updated retelling of Millstone Grit 31 May 2011
By Eunice - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
After his marriage failed, in 1971 aspiring poet Mr. Hughes did what many dream of doing. He decided to devote his time to serious full time writing. Needing a place to live, but having no money, he trekked the old pathways of the West Yorkshire moors and found a derelict old weaver's cottage in an equally derelict mill village for which he paid 50 pounds. At the time Mill Bank, in his words. was a haven for those owing back rent and clients of the magistrates bench. He restored the tiny one room upstairs, one room and a coal hole down, with an outside outhouse 35 yards up the hill. Having no mortgage, electricity or running water made for a simplified life. if not for everyone, but Mr. Hughes enjoyed the tranquility and soon like-minded friends began to move in to the village. The entire village was threatened with demolition to be replaced by a housing estate, which took a hard fight to defeat. The gentrified Mill Bank is a very different village today.

His moorland walks inspired 'Millstone Grit' a description of his walks in the Pennines the lesser known history of the area and conversations with the individuals he met along the way. This book is a revised and largely rewritten updating, printed in a larger format on better paper and includes more and better photographs.

In addition to being a writer and poet, Mr. Hughes was also a painter and broadcaster.
