Villages Around York by Paul Chrystal & Mark Sunderland. This book tells the fascinating stories of five villages situated to the north of the city of York. Spanning events from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries through to the opening of the new Joseph Rowntree School in 2010, it provides a brief history of life here through the years with informative captions accompanying each photograph. The book will give today's residents a unique glimpse of how their village used to look, as well as reviving nostalgia in those who used to live or work here.

Early schools and churches in Haxby and Huntington, Strensall's association with the Army, the impact of the Foss Navigation and the pioneering, visionary work of the Joseph Rowntree Trust which resulted in the garden village that is New Earswick - all are covered here in pictures and in words.
