book 'Gilberdyke, a village story' edited by Susan Butler, Yorkshire
Gilberdyke is about 20 miles from Hull and has grown in the last 30 years from a small agricultural settlement into a commuter village with several housing estates.

This book was written by a WEA class which met in 1986/7 and covered such topics as Gilberdyke mills, population and occupations in 1851, roads, rivers and railways, schools, local Methodists, Sandholme brickworks, the Staddlethorpe flax mill, Wade's pole yard, the Gracie Fields connection and the village in wartime.

The book proved very popular and sold out within three years.
