I bought this for my Dad and he absolutely loved it. My family is Yorkshire born and bred, and we have lived all over God's own country. This book was full of interesting facts my Dad didn't know, and he loves coming out with random Yorkshire facts to anyone who will listen. This is a great book for anyone from Yorkshire and is sure to raise a few smiles and exclamations of "I never knew that!". Thoroughly recommmended!

This is a pretty impressive volume, containing the sort of facts and trivia that will surely be of interest to natives of (and visitors to) the three historic Yorkshire Ridings. It has certainly taught me a thing or two - although I'm just a bloke from Essex with a head like a sieve and no discernible intelligence whatsoever. As is evidenced by my being on holiday in Yorkshire at this very moment, in the occasional company of my ex-wife - who really can't stand me.

I originally spent more than a week flicking through these pages, alone, and in the safety of my own living room. Christopher Winn's Yorkshire seemed like a truly magical location, full of charm and character. Just the sort of place, I thought, to take a lady for her latest 39th birthday.

Having a head like a sieve, I was very pleasantly surprised to find that I did seem to be retaining an awful lot of the information I was reading. I had definite visions of visiting quite a large number of these locations with my former wife and of imparting Mr Winn's facts and figures to her, completely from memory. She, in turn, would obviously have been hugely impressed by my efforts, to the extent where she might (only MIGHT, mind you) have actually smiled at me.

I put such a ridiculous level of optimism down to the ease with which stuff of interest was popping into my head and then taking residence in it. And I put that down to Mr Winn's smart presentation. Rather than simply having pages and pages of writing in the same typeface the author has, very cleverly, managed to emphasise (almost as bullet points) the relevant details of WHY these places are especially noteworthy. Combined with the beautiful little black and white illustrations provided by his wife, Mai Osawa, it makes the book a very interesting read.

Book looks at the different areas of God's county by area and location of historic and facinating facts. Good buy for a pressie for Yorkies and those people unfortunate not to be born in the most modest of counties! Lovely book!

Gave this as a present to my grandad who is in his 90s and has lived in Yorkshire all his life. Tells me he is enjoying it- though I'm not sure if there is anything he doesn't know about Yorkshire. I have the same book for the Lake District and really enjoy it. Good book for dipping into and reading little facts and stories about locations.

I'm really enjoying this book. Thatcher took my town out of Yorkshire in 1974 and I felt quite bereft. I felt my heritage was being taken away. It's lovely to read about the place and find out all these things and it's especially good to have been put back into Yorkshire. Thank goodness there's some justice.

Super little book. High quality hardback book. Bought this for some American visitors that came over for Christmas and they loved it. Worth noting that everyone else loved it to (we are all from Yorkshire) and this was never out of somebody's hands all holiday. Readable and interesting.
