This new extended edition documents the history of Filey; 'The Unspoilt Hidden Gem of The Yorkshire Coast, ' with its glorious sweeping beach, elegant Victorian houses and well-kept gardens, and Fishing history, but what were Filey's origins?

Mentioned in the Domesday Book, Filey was a 'tiny village occupied by less than fifty people, and worth a reasonable income, with access to good quality timber which was ideal for construction.'

Who were these people? Were they Filey's oldest residents, How did they live?

This fully illustrated book traces the town's history from Roman occupation and records the history of the town's churches and the Methodist's influence on the community.

It also recalls the story of The Bonhomme Richard and its notorious Captain John Paul Jones. Together with Filey's connection to the famous writer Arthur Conan Doyle and the fictional super-sleuth Sherlock Holmes.
