Overview

Welcome to the weird and wonderful world of Yorkshire, or as it is sometimes beautifully referred to, Gods Own County. Though this isnt the usual side of the county the tourists, travellers and residents see. This is the real Yorkshire, the strange and twisted nooks and crannies of the countys bizarre history past, present and future. Following on from the bestselling Portico Strangest titles now comes a book devoted to one of Englands most beautiful valley regions. Located in the upper body of Britains old man, Yorkshire is a county with more strangeness than you can shake a Dale walking stick at. Home of Robin Hood (he was born in Barnsdale), Guy Fawkes, Dick Turpin and Dracula (Bram Stoker wrote part of the vampire tale in a Whitby hotel!) and, some say, the birthplace of modern civilization even began in Leeds! But youll have to read the book to find out why. Yorkshires Strangest Tales is a treasure trove of the hilarious, the odd and the baffling an alternative travel guide to some of the countys best-kept secrets. Read on, if you dare! You have been warned. Word count: 35,000
