Published by Heysham Heritage Association 2000: 80 pages between A5 and A4: numerous illustrations.

The Heysham peninsula is one of those hidden corners of England, full of interest but little-known outside its immediate locality. The natural heritage of the peninsula, as well as its varied past, are brought alive by nuggets of local history and reminiscences of former times.

An unusual work in that it is sourced entirely from the spoken word of the people of Heysham, with notable contributions from members of the Royds family. By reading the spoken words of people they seem to become more real.. As the author writes:

This book is dedicated to the people of Heysham.
