Down Your Way will be twenty-five years old in January – and to mark its silver anniversary, the magazine has launched a poll to find the greatest twenty-five Yorkshire men and women from the twentieth century.

It is asking the public to pick their top ten men and top ten women from the county – after all, it is the people who make the county special. The only criteria is that the “greats” must have been born in the county during the twentieth century.

You can cast your vote online at Alternatively you can email your choices to, or write them down on the back of a postcard or sealed envelope and send them to Yorkshire Greats, Down Your Way, The Gatehouse, Skipton Castle, Skipton BD23 1AL.

The top twenty-five will be revealed in January’s Down Your Way. The closing date for votes is 22 November.
