The Cragg Vale Coiners Walk Map | Christopher Goddard & Benjamin Myers
This fold-out, hand-drawn map by the Yorkshire mapmaker Chris Goddard takes its inspiration from the Ben Myers novel 'The Gallows Pole'. The book (which is well worth your pennies) charts the rise and fall of ‘King’ David Hartley and an 18th-century criminal enterprise that rocked the national economy.
The map, that takes you from the heart of Mytholmroyd to Errigden Moor, is a unique collaboration that allows the curious reader to visit several key locations from Myer's excellent book. You'll take a diverse route that takes in ancient woods, moorlands, stunning views, and haunts of the murderous Cragg Vale Coiners.
For learned walkers and intrepid readers alike - through the use of snippets from the novel and Chris's illuminating annotation, the landscape and history of the area are brought to vivid life.
