Can I thank you most sincerely for sending me Rosalin Barker’s book, The rise of an Early Modern Shipping Industry.
We recently became interested in that period, mostly as a result of going on guided walks to do with the alum industry which were organised by Beth Andrews of the Tees Valley Wildlife Trust. I can now take my interest much further.
Thank you very much again and keep up the good work on the Gazette, which means so much to those of us who love Whitby but aren’t luck enough to live there.
