Yorkshire's Forgotten Fenlands

Yorkshire's Forgotten Fenlands

Yorkshire’ Forgotten Fens’ is a history of the cultural landscape of the wetlands of the Humber basin and the entire county of Yorkshire stretching from the Humber and north Lincolnshire through the Vale of York, through South Yorkshire and Holderness, to Pickering and beyond.

The book draws together the story of a changing landscape, the lost cultures and ways of life, and the wildlife that has gone too.

With the final chapter closing on the new wet fenland landscapes which are now emerging and presenting current visions and challenges for these truly evocative of landscapes, this is a book based on our past but with a vision for the future.

The book is profusely illustrated with maps, photographs, paintings, and extracts from historic documents.
