Drawing on a wide selection of sources and illustrated with more than 50 images, this collection of grisly tales explores the shadier side of Harrogate's past. Among the cases featured here are a police constable stabbed in Pateley Bridge in 1831; a wife who poisoned her husband in Dallowgill in 1834; and two children murdered by their father in Ripon in 1837. Also included is a Beckwithshaw woman purportedly buried alive in 1888, and a baby found drowned in the River Nidd in 1842, as well as highway robbery, assault, and mysterious disappearances. With murders, hangings, kidnap, and violence, Murder & Crime: Harrogate & District is sure to captivate and horrify everyone interested in the criminal history of this part of North Yorkshire.
