The History of Driffield, East Yorkshire

From Earliest Times to the Year 2000


Driffield’s story is typical of any small market town, but, like these, its story is also unique, not only in its hey-day, with canal builders, railway barons and town-makers ensuring the leap from village to town, but also from earliest times with the visits of nomadic hunters and gatherers. We learn of its rich Anglo-Saxon past, and follow Driffield’s story meandering through the ages, unnoticed by the outside world, and through it all the recurrent theme of people working the land, tending, transforming, remoulding and conserving their common inheritance. This scholarly, yet accessible book provides the first full-length history of Driffield since1898.
