A Message from Val Wood
Over the years I have had many letters from readers all over the world asking me for specifics of locations as mentioned in my novels. Readers become so involved that they want to visit the locations and picture life how it used to be and so I would like to welcome you to this specially commissioned Val Wood Trail. My new venture wouldn’t have been possible without my team who have put everything together and the kind contributions from Dr Robb Robinson and Dr Alec Gill. I also thank Scarborough Maritime Heritage Centre for their help and Steve Goodhand from Lordline who kindly granted permission to use his photographs. Most importantly I would like to thank you, my constant and loyal readers, who have shown such interest in my work – this is for you.
