Memories of Mill Hill Farm and Sheriff Hutton from 1932 by E.C. Weightman. Includes colour and b&w photographs
Eric Weightman has lived and farmed in Ryedale, Yorkshire all of his life. In his memoirs he paints a picture of not only long gone farming practices from his childhood and early years, but also of life in the rural community of Sheriff Hutton, and the dramatic changes that have taken place.
Tales of the Second World War from the locality feature large, including the local Home Guard, bomber aircraft from Eastmoor aerodrome and tank maneouvres in the Wolds.
Published privately, this is quite a scarce copy and is likely to be of particular interest to those who are familiar with Ryedale.
