Memories of the Yorkshire Fishing Industry

Product Description

Using first-hand accounts, Ron Freethy tells the story of Yorkshire's fishing industry from its height between the 1840s and the 1960s to decline after the controversial Cod Wars of the 1970s. The book explains the conditions, the work, the people and the humour; providing a lasting record for generations to come.

During its heyday, small fishing villages expanded and whole families were involved in the business as a way of life. For every man out at sea, it was said, there would be 20 men and women working on land preparing and selling the catch.

Yorkshire's fishing ports included Hull, Whitby, Staithes, Robin Hood's Bay, Flamborough, Scarborough, Filey and Bridlington.

Ron Freethy, a well known local journalist and broadcaster, has combined local memories with well-researched stories and contemporary photographs to record a way of life before it disappears for ever.
