West Yorkshire Reports

Mytholmroyd, West Yorkshire

Review of Mytholmroyd by Gordon Waltham on March 3rd, 2009
I grew up not far from Mytholmroyd in Midgley from the age of 11. I attended Calder valley high leaving at 15 yrs. I left in 1962 and have been living in Australia since January 1963. I have only been home twice, both timers I headed immediately for the Calder valley. There is no place like it anywhere in the world and I've seen quite a bit of the world. I wrote a poem which I called 'the white Yorkshire rose' it is about what Yorkshire mean to me and I'm sure every Yorkshire person, it has been set to music and was used as a eulogy for two of my brother's. I is my intension to revisit England in November 2009, if I am over my last operation for cancer in time. If I don't make it I know that it will still be there, the valley the moors and the spirit of the people of the vale! Al the best. Gordon Waltham
