This issue contains the following articles.
But there is much more to these articles, please read and enjoy them. We welcome your comments, it is really important to us to know what readers enjoy most – and least. The Yorkshire Journal is completely free, and we intend it to stay that way. But (there is always a but), this means that we have no advertising budget to promote the journal, and have to rely on web links from related sites, Google searches and personal recommendation to find new readers. Consequently only a very small number of people know about us, and it is frustrating that many people would enjoy the journal – if they only knew about it!So we would really appreciate your help to widen our circulation. The most important thing is to tell your friends and relatives about us, if you only convince one person to download an issue of the journal it would be much appreciated. If you belong to a local history society ask them to add a link to our website – we will gladly reciprocate the link. If you use Facebook then please click the “Like us on Facebook” link at the bottom of this page, or write a short post about us on your Facebook timeline. However you do it please help us to become better known.
Actually there are two buts. We have one or two authors who regularly write articles for us, and a few who occasionally do so. We badly need to increase the number of authors. People like you who are passionate about Yorkshire. Almost everyone knows something interesting about their locality which would be of interest to others so please do consider making a contribution. Or perhaps you know someone who you could persuade to write something for us. More details in our Contributions page.
We have greatly expanded our Links page since publishing the last issue, so there is lots more to look at after you have finished reading this issue
Most of all – enjoy the new issue, and dip into our archive too!
