W.J. Yarwood & Sons Ltd., Shipbuilders of Northwich 1896 - 1966 by Clive Guthrie. 20 pages, 64 illustrations, £4.00.

Shipbuilding was part of Northwich's hidden heritage until we published this history in 1996. Yarwood's built around 1,030 vessels, mostly coasters, tugs and barges, and this fascinating booklet by the authority on the subject, is a testimony to the skilled and dedicated craftsmen and women who built vessels which achieved a worldwide reputation for quality and innovation.
