About the author:
Since his retirement, Peter Appleton has developed a keen interest in the local history of Skelton-in-Cleveland and the surrounding area of north-east Yorkshire. Having spent almost all his life living in the village, he can draw upon a wealth of personal memories and knowledge about the community.
He is a founder member and Secretary of Skelton History Group, and is regularly called upon to give talks to other local organisations. His interest in the local heritage has led to him becoming a volunteer guide at the Cleveland Ironstone Mining Museum and at Tocketts Mill water-powered corn mill.
