Nineteenth-Century Tales from Northern England

Given half a chance your typical northerner will be more than willing to tell you a tale – mind you, it’ll probably cost you a pint or two of ale. In forty years of journalism in Yorkbook northtalescovershire I’ve heard plenty of stories…many of them embellished, based on rumour, totally fictitious or even, in a few cases, actually true. The tales I retell here help paint a picture of northern working class life during this period of the industrial revolution. They are based on published work of writers of the time, many of them pioneers in dialect writing.
