South Yorkshire has some of the most varied countryside in England, ranging from the Pennine moors and the wooded hills and valleys in the west to the estate villages on the magnesian limestone escarpment and the lowlands in the east. Each of these different landscapes has been shaped by human activities over the centuries. This book tells the story of how the present landscape was created. It looks at buildings, fields, woods and moorland, navigable rivers and industrial remains, and the intriguing place-names that are associated with them.

Chapters include:

The Oldest Parish Churches Monasteries and their Granges Pennine Farms Wombwell Ings and Old Moor Inland Waterways Wentworth Castle Cannon Hall and its Park Coal Mining and many more. 80 b/w
