Description

This wonderful second collection of images of Rothwell and the surrounding district revisits the life of the people of this West Yorkshire village during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, using over 200 photographs and ephemera to take the reader on a nostalgic journey into the area's past. The ancient village of Rothwell dates back to Anglo-Saxon times, and was also an important administrative centre for the 'Honour of Pontefract' during the medieval times. The hunting park at Rothwell was well known to the kings of England - King John came to hunt in the thirteenth century, as did Edward III in the fourteenth century. Local folklore says that the great John of Gaunt killed the last wild boar in the are in the last years of his life. Around Rothwell: Volume Two is an important pictorial record of this intriguing area of West Yorkshire, which will delight those who know the area as it is today and evoke memories of a bygone age for those who have lived there.
