This fascinating book is the culmination of more than a year's research by Anthony Dodsworth helped by members of the Rawmarsh and Parkgate Local History Group and some of the students from St Pius X Catholic High School, Wath-upon-Dearne.

The area's unique heritage is captured here with stories of schooldays, the Whit parades, working lives in the coal mines and steelworks, the Second World War, and, of course, some of Rawmarsh's well-known and shops and businesses, including Schonhut's Butchers and Robbie's Picture House.

Filled with tales that will move, remind and delight the reader, this nostalgic volume will engage and entrance all who know the area.
