The History of Batley 1800-1974 by Malcolm H. Haigh

The History of Batley 1800 -1974 by Malcolm H Haigh in 1978 reprinted twice but still hard to find. The fact the Malcolm was a journalist must have contributed to the fact that this is a fantastically readable book. I am a great fan of local history books but some are badly written, as not everybody however they love local history are good authors which is why I have not tried to write one myself. I have a copy without d.j. £25.00

Batley & District Hospital Bazaar Souvenir Handbook 1926

Pretty tatty copy, but where else would you find one. 104 pages with a bit of history and of a few people and buildings, the old, present and proposed hospitals. But to me the greatest interest is in the local advertisements (there are a number of national adverts). The best illustration to me though was the Batley Co-op. In the shop £8.00 through the post £10.50 (UK)
