Description

This beautiful collection of over 200 archive images, many never before published, explores the South Yorkshire village of Greasbrough. The village has changed considerably in the last fifty years; buildings have disappeared and schools, churches and pubs have changed, but the strong sense of community has remained. Each image is accompanied by a detailed caption, bringing the past to life and describing every aspect of life in Greasbrough, including transport, shops, sports, special occasions and even floods and fires. Nearby Wentworth Woodhouse and Park are also covered, as are the local collieries and chemical works. The main focus is, however, on the people who made up this vibrant community, including many faces which will still be recognisable to the readers of this fascinating book today. This pictorial history will delight anyone who has lived or worked in Greasbrough, inspiring memories of more tranquil times and a more peaceful village life.show more
