Malcolm Neesam is an institution. He is a much-loved local historian and Freeman of the Borough of Harrogate, and there can be no one who knows more about the history of his native Harrogate. In this monumental work, Malcolm has left no archive unresearched, excluded nothing from the epic story of Yorkshire’s famous spa. Rich with detail, lavishly illustrated, and astonishingly comprehensive, Wells and Swells: the Golden Age of Harrogate Spa, 1842-1923, is an invaluable resource bound in a beautiful, limited edition, two-volume set. It is an immediate classic, and is certain be highly collectable in years to come.
