About this title


A description of how Ilkley adapted to the changing circumstances of a community at war


In the nineteenth century, Ilkley prospered as an inland spa resort. During the war years the grand hydros and hotels were adapted for war-time uses; hostels for evacuees and bases for government offices and the military. An Officer Cadet Training Unit based in the town commandeered some of the largest hotels and the Government Wool Control department occupied two of the hydros. This book looks, amongst others, at subjects such as the Home Guard, evacuees and European refugees, "Holidays at Home", war savings and campaigns, describing how Ilkley, Burley and Menston adapted to all the changing circumstances of a community at war.
