Spirit of Elmet


After The High Wolds which looked at the Yorkshire Wolds, my next book will be on Elmet, the ancient British kingdom that existed independently in Yorkshire in the dark ages. Publication due in summer 2021.

The cover image is of Hook Moor Windmills, taken in 2017. The irrational opposition to wind turbines seems to be pretty weak in Elmet, with a number of wind farms adding to the beauty and interest of the area. Hook Moor is open access land at Aberford that has now taken on a bit of the look of the Castile plain in Spain.
