Village Life In Verse Local Dialect East Yorkshire

A Memory of Barmston

Born and brought up in Barmston village, my book, 'Diz Thoo Remembr' recalls many of the happenings in the village from 1933 onwards. I was born into what could have been a family of twenty. My mum had 17 (seventeen) children, though not all lived, and helped bring up an 18th. The book has pictures of the village and records in verse details of village life. A book well worth having on any bookshelf.
