This fascinating collection of more than 200 archive photographs traces some of the ways in which Bawtry, Rossington, Tickhill and Wadworth have changed over the past century. Set in the tranquil Doncaster countryside and sustained by their markets and mining industry, these towns are characterised by many striking landmarks. From Tickhill Castle, where Oliver Cromwell waged the Battle of Marston, to Bawtry Hall and the elegant arches of St Michael's church, and with detailed sections on commerce, local characters such as 'Billy the Fish' and memorable events including the Coronation cycle fancy dress parade through Bawtry, the book provides a unique insight into life in the area as it used to be and is sure to awaken nostalgic memories for anyone who ever knew the villages. For others who have not yet visited 'Parrot's Corner', it will be an intriguing introduction.
