Silkstone at War Book

A new book, Silkstone at War, by Andy Horsfield, covering the period of the Great War is available from the Archive. If you’d like one, come and see us on a Thursday or get in touch by email. We have a limited stock so please get in touch to check we still have some before turning up in person. The following is taken from Andy’s original post on Facebook:

I have a new book due out in November to commemorate end of the First World War based on what happened in and around Silkstone & Silkstone Common at that time. There are many references to other villages and Penistone. There are 120 pages and over 100 photos – many that have been in private collections and never published before. Orders being taken now – only available from me. It is a limited print run as I am financing this myself. Cost will be £10. If anyone wants one let me know here or email and we can sort delivery out at the time. Many Thanks.
