SUTTON, BRANSHOLME AND WAWNE

Church and People - a Celebration
by Merrill Rhodes

Sad to say, this book is now effectively 'out of print'. We started planning to replace the book with a DVD-ROM some 18 months ago, and now it is complete. We can now issue a digitised copy, complete with photos, on DVD at exactly the same price.

please note: this DVD is made for computers; PCs and laptops; not for TV via domestic DVD players.

For anyone interested in local history, has an interest in the historic families of Sutton & Wawne, or who has recently moved into the area, we think the DVD will be just as popular as the book.

Files are in HTML format (same as web pages) and images are JPEG; a whole-text version of all 12 chapters, without images, is in doc, docx and rtf formats.

This new photo-DVD, incorporating all of Merrill's book including maps and photos, plus many more images of Sutton and Wawne, including both ancient churches, is now on sale.

On-line Orders can now be taken, and the price is £10, plus any post & packing as required.

As of July 2017, we have to state that postage charges for destinations abroad are now almost prohibitive; the rate now to send one of our books to New Zealand is just short of £8, effectively as much as the book. It seems not that long ago we were sending DVDs to NZ for around £4.

So much for Royal Mail privatisation. Privateers would be a more apt description, akin to highwaymen. I used to have such respect for our Royal Mail, but now feel it's moved away from the great institution it used to be.

Payment can also be taken by BACS, and our account details are at the bottom of our Friends page where donations can be made.

Please email us first, and let us know when you have sent your payment through, and of course, your postal address, and on arrival in our account, we will post you the disc.

For Hull folks able to get into town . . . .
it is also available in limited numbers at:
THE HULL PEOPLES' MEMORIAL SHOP
in Whitefriargate, Tuesday to Saturday,
and in
THE HISTORY CENTRE
Tuesday to Friday, and every other Saturday.

please note: for PCs/Laptops only;

typically doubling the cost.

MORE TALES
FROM THE EAST RIDING


Martin Limon

. . . a collection of local history stories already published by magazines like the Yorkshire Ridings Magazine and The Journal.
This fascinating new collection of tales of the East Riding contains momentous events, true crimes, surprising incidents and biographies of the area's famous sons and daughters. The stories cover an area from York down to Hull and include such tales as: Across the Humber, The Civil War in East Yorkshire, When Cholera Came Calling, Mary Wollstonecraft in Georgian Beverley, William Wilberforce, Airships Over East Yorkshire, Rogues' Gallery and many more. There are stories of some the county's other famous residents, Kay Kendall and Amy Johnson, as well as some forgotten aspects of the region's past - including the crime that shocked eighteenth-century Long Riston, as well as health care in the area long before the arrival of the NHS. This book will appeal to anyone with an interest in the history of the region, and also awaken memories of a bygone time for those who worked or lived here.

.. is a new local history publication,
and is the sequel to 'Tales From the East Riding'
published by Tempus in November 2006.

HULL'S OWN AIR FORCE STATION

by Leonard C Bacon
in softback, A4 size.

We must add our own thanks
that Len completed this history before his untimely death on 23 Aug 2007.

It is packed with information about all the units that served at RAF Sutton on Hull until its closure, along with b&photos and diagrams, and is a thoroughly comprehensive study of a time that is still fondly remembered by older Sutton residents.

Whether recounting the days of the RAF School of Fire-Fighting and Rescue, or of the wartime balloon barrage crews, it is a fascinating read and sales financed the placing of the Blue Plaque commemorating the RAF station in Bransholme Library.

HULL'S OWN AIR FORCE STATION
