“FOGGATHORPE” A HISTORY OF VILLAGE LIFE is a hard back book with over 200 pages accompanied by over a 100 photos and illustrations.

It has been acclaimed and described by some of East Yorkshire’s best known historians as a rare opportunity for readers with a Foggathorpe connection to become far more acquainted with the local history of this very small community. This rich village history includes entire chapters on its six most celebrated families.
