In 2003, Mr Tom Duffy from Cleator Moor released his book, ‘Cleator Moor Revealed’ to much acclaim. During that year, the book was constantly listed in the top 10 books of Cumbria for a six month period. That accolade proved how popular local history, and Tom’s book in particular were. A limited print run of 1,000 copies quickly cleared the shelves.
Now, sixteen years later Tom has revisited his book and released a second edition with extra content. During its first week of release on Amazon, the book tipped the scales at Number 24, as a British History best seller, which is quite the achievement when pitted against the likes of Winston Churchill’s autobiography.
Cleator Moor Revealed discloses the ‘highs and lows’ of a town which was once at the heart of British Industry, feeding the Industrial Revolution of Great Britain. From the origins of its name through its development as a prosperous mining town, Tom has searched out all the kind of details that make this a fascinating read.
82-year-old Tom said: “Having seen old copies of my book sold on the Internet for £250, I decided to revisit the history of Cleator Moor, and publish an updated version at a much more reasonable price. Cleator Moor Revealed will make an ideal addition to the collection of local history enthusiasts; for those wanting to learn more about their roots; or simply as a gift for those that love the town, which is also known as Little Ireland.”
Cleator Moor Revealed is available worldwide from Amazon. ISBN-13: 978-1687094957.
