Yorkshire Disasters by Vivien Teasdale. What have Penistone, Hull, Thirsk and Bradford got in common? Along with many other places in Yorkshire, they were the scenes of major disasters. This book is a fascinating collection of events including railway accidents, lifeboat disasters, mining disasters, floods, boats sinking, chimneys collapsing and ferries being blown up. The stories explain how the disasters happened, how people reacted at the time and where the blame was seen to lie, though all too often the word 'accident' covered a multitude of sins.

The disasters cover a range of types, places and dates showing that no one is ever really safe anywhere, any time!
