On Ilkley Moor
Purchase Title ›
Published Date: 20 April 2001
An imaginative history of Tim Binding’s childhood home – Ilkley Moor, Yorkshire: a series of explorations, partly factual, partly intuitive and partly personal. Binding tells a story about Victorian optimism, industry and commerce, but, above all, of England and the lost dreams of the 1950s.
Tim Binding also writes as T J Middleton.
‘A prolonged act of reclamation, a metaphysical meditation on a sense of time and place . . . An evocative, resonant and sometimes disturbing book’ Philip Hoare, Independent
‘Fascinating . . . a journey into the heart of Yorkshire gone by, this is a powerful book, constantly informed by the hulking moor above the town’ Condé Nast Traveller
