Voices of the Dearne Valley is the unique and fascinating result of many conversations and interviews with local people, recalling life in the area over the past century. Compiled by broadcast journalist Diane Parkin, vivid memories are recounted, including childhood and schooldays, work and play, sport and leisure, and the war years. Illustrated with over 80 photographs, many previously unpublished, this volume also demonstrates the humour, courage and indomitable spirit of the local population and paints a revealing picture of life in these former mining communities. Anyone who knows the Dearne Valley, as a resident or a visitor, will be amused and entertained, surprised and moved by these stories, which capture the unique spirit and heritage of this part of South Yorkshire.
