For those interested in all aspects of Yorkshire heritage, tradition and nostalgia. Ever remember how life used to be better, back in the day? Well, pick up a copy of Down Your Way magazine and prepare to revel in a glorious, sepia-toned past.
Self-described as Yorkshire’s Nostalgic Magazine, Down Your Way brings you the very best of the memories of yester-year. Yorkshire as a county has a great history, and the wonderful articles within this magazine bring this to life. Perhaps the best thing about this publication is that the articles are written by people who were there, first-hand, and the recounting of their lives will bring many a smile to many a face.

If you’re from Yorkshire you can feel rightly proud of yourself, and the nostalgia is fully warranted in Down Your Way. Where else could you hear the wonderful tale of the pit worker who became the greatest tightrope artist of his generation, the Great Alanza, more prosaically known as Harold Davis. He claimed that walking the high rope was safer than the pits, yet you would never hear a word of complaint from the lips of any Yorkshireman. We’ll leave you with the tale of how he got his name – ‘Al’ was his nickname, ‘ana’ was from his sisters middle name, and of course the ‘z’ was thrown in for good measure to make it a little more showbiz.
