A History of Mirfield – By H N Pobjoy
Published by the Ridings Publishing Company in 1969 a 220 page 10”X8” hard back illustrated with line drawings and is indexed. It was seen as the “definitive” history of Mirfield for a long time, though obviously a personal thing I always thought it too “Churchy”. I was more frustrated by the fact that Pobjoy had access to a large amount of interesting material. He does not mention one of my ancestors who was a Mirfield resident who was hung at York for “Clipping and Coining” (a fact I did not mention when I stood for the council in Mirfield).
A fine copy in a dust jacket with a slightly discoloured spine. £30.00
