A review of the book by Angela Petyt:

'Ilkley Ancient and Modern' is a detailed chronological and natural history of the famous moor and spa town from prehistory to the Victorian period. Within this are some absolute gems for the family historian, including -

Best of all are the pedigrees and histories of not only the prominent families of Middleton, Plumpton and Margerison, but also of many other local families, making this book an indispensable source for those with Ilkley ancestors.
The attractive illustrations add to the appeal of this fascinating and informative book.
