Nostalgia: The age of plunder

By the time of Shakespeare’s birth in 1564 his country had experienced a revolution in land and property ownership. Yorkshire was particularly affected by this revolution because so much of the county had for centuries belonged to religious houses, orders and guilds, but was now almost entirely in the hands of secular owners. Before the dissolution of 1536-40, Yorkshire had 610 monks, 200 friars and 230 nuns living in 35 abbeys, 18 friaries and 24 nunneries, yet even these figures fail to convey the vast extent of their properties and wealth.

Howard Croft column: Was it incompetence and laziness or slippery connivance?

During Christmas week I drove through the redesigned junction in Norton, where Welham Road, Church Street and County Bridge meet. I have always been uneasy when negotiating that spot, largely because of poor road markings and signage, but also because of drivers incorrectly assuming they had right of way and others surrendering their right of way, thus creating uncertainty and unexpected vehicle movements.
