    Turnpike Roads for Family & Local Historians
    by Edgar Holroyd-Doveton

    An H&D FHS Speaker Meeting

    Edgar has been a professional historian for 30 years and an active family and local historian for 20. He  provided this fascinating talk to the Society at our Fair in November. He spoke about the development of the Turnpike Road system in Britain from the earliest days — 1663 was the first, up to their decline at the end of the nineteenth century, mainly due to the growth of the railways.

    His extensive knowledge and interesting presentation also linked very well with the  turnpike connections to local history and family history and his new book (titled as above) is a very well researched and detailed account of all aspects of the turnpikes.

    Turnpike Roads for Family and Local Historians'
    is published by Digger Press, Holmfirth,
    2016.
