As part of the backup I provide for students on my local history/heritage courses I maintain a page called Discover Your Local Heritage. This gives details of the websites and books which are mentioned during the courses and should help students follow up on any of the topics which we have discussed.
The page is in three sections – National, Regional (Yorkshire) and Towns and Villages. They would also be useful to those people carrying out independent research into their own local communities.
I will be running three local history/heritage courses starting next week. There’s one each in Bradford, Ilkley and Shipley. For details click on the link below and it will take you to the appropriate course outline on the WEA website.
