Book description

This book tells the stories of extreme crime in the social history of one of Britain’s major steel towns. But the Lindsey and Isle of Axeholme areas have other sources of interest in the context of law and disorder. The 1536 Pilgrimage of Grace was prominent here; there were footpath gangs, and highwaymen active around the Humber, and in more recent times the town has seen several unsolved murder cases. ‘The Industrial Garden Town’ has seen communal conflict industrial turmoil and the extreme acts of violence are associated with a town with unsettled labour patterns and rapid social change.
