KNOTTINGLEY AND FERRYBRIDGE REVISITED
A REMARKABLE BOOK

ADDED 23 JUNE 2006

Today as the England versus Trinidad match kicked off, I set off walking from my house to go to Mr. Ron Gosney's home to pick up a copy of his book - Knottingley and Ferrybridge Revisited.

It was a fair walk which took me about 35 minutes to get there. I paid 13 for the book then walked home (another 35 minutes).

I caught the last 15 minutes of the football but I didn't care. Every minute I spent walking and every penny I spent on the book was well worth it. Mr. Gosney's book is a fantastic collection of photographs of Knottingley and Ferrybridge and the quality of the images is amazing. I spent the next couple of hours after getting the book going through it from cover to cover several times each time noticing different things.

If you already have a copy of this book you will know exactly what I mean, but if you haven't already bought this book I recommend you go out and buy it now. If you don't you will be missing out on a trip through time; a time when Knottingley folk looked happy all the time; a time when the few roads in Knottingley weren't clogged up with traffic and a time when graffiti and vandalism were non existent.

This is the sort of book that will get you and your family or friends talking for hours. You look at the first photo and say "Isn't that the place where what's his name lived?" then you say "Didn't he work with our thingy who used to live near the bloke who went in that pub where thingy used to work?" and before you know it you have spent 30 minutes discussing the first photo. The book is full of photos exactly like that and it is a must for all Knottingley folk.
