Description

Drawing on a wide selection of sources and illustrated with more than fifty images, this collection of grisly tales explores the shadier side of Harrogate’s past.

Among the cases featured here are a police constable stabbed in Pateley Bridge in 1831; a wife who poisoned her husband in Dallowgill in 1834; and two children murdered by their father in Ripon in 1837. Also included is a Beckwithshaw woman purportedly buried alive in 1888, and a baby found drowned in the River Nidd in 1842 as well as highway robbery, assault and mysterious disappearances.

With murders, hangings, kidnap and violence, Murder & Crime: Harrogate & District is sure to captivate and horrify everyone interested in the criminal history of this part of North Yorkshire.
