New ‘pre-pub’ records available from Yorkshire’s West Riding

Ted McGee, co-editor of the Yorkshire, West Riding REED material (with Sylvia Thomas) has made available some new records* for West Yorkshire, relating to performance in the ancient village of Methley and nearby Methley Manor, and in the accounts of Sir Leonard Beckwith of Selby (c.1520-1555). You can access all of the current West Riding records here:

  1. I look forward to reading these records and the WRY volume when it arrives. Just one thing: On the page with the title “New ‘pre-pub’ records available from Yorkshire’s West Riding”, there is a button labelled “Bulk Delete”. If it really does what it says, I don’t think it’s a button I should be seeing?

    1. Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Henrik. This seems to have stemmed from an issue with the Google Maps plug-in that we use to display maps (the phantom ‘Bulk Delete’ button applied to the markers on the map, rather than the uploaded records). I seem to have corrected it now (and am grateful to you for pointing it out!).

      With best wishes,
