Wake­field Then and Now: Ex­tra­or­di­nary Tales from the Mer­rie City

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - THE GUIDE - by Michael J Rochford ( Pen and Sword, £11.99)

Es­caped bears, out-of-con­trol hot air bal­loons and tales of se­cret pas­sages – this book has it all. Rochford’s en­thu­si­asm for his home city is ev­i­dent in this book, which com­bines folk­lore and lively sto­ries with fas­ci­nat­ing his­tor­i­cal de­tail. Wake­field Then & Now paints an in­trigu­ing pic­ture of a chang­ing cityscape that you’ll want to ex­plore too.
