Scunthorpe books: History & Heritage

Foul Deeds and Suspicious Deaths in and Around Scunthorpe
Foul Deeds and Suspicious Deaths in and Around Scunthorpe

North Lincolnshire and Humberside is an area with more than its fair share of violent history. Although mainly rural, the region has been notorious in the annals of crime, from the rebellion known as the Pilgrimage of Grace (1536) to the sensational murder cases of the twentieth century. Scunthorpe, created when several villages amalgamated as the iron and steel industry grew in the Victorian period, is the centre of a cluster of places with extreme crime in the locality, from the lawless wastes around the Isle of Axholme in the West, to the port of Barton towards the Humber. Scunthorpe has had its fair share of foul murder, especially when it expanded to cope with an influx of labour for the 'Works' at Normanby and Appleby-Frodingham. In many cases, killings and attacks were 'domestic' as men cracked with stress and alcohol. But the town also had its war-time night-stalker and its sad unsolved killings. The book tells these tales, and many more, from Epworth to Brigg, and from the fields and the mean streets.
