Five Streets: the Early History of the Scarcroft Road Estate, York

This Friday evening, 10 March 2017, Mark Service will be talking about Five Streets: the Early History of the Scarcroft Road Estate, York.

Millfield Road peace celebrations 1919
Mark first presented some of his research at a very popular meeting here four years ago, and we’ve invited him back again. It’s based on his York MA in the Archaeology of Buildings, using documentary evidence to find out lots of interesting details about the houses in the five streets – Nunmill St, Thorpe St, Scott St, Russell St and Millfield Road – and the people who lived in them, 100 years ago.

The talk is at 7.30 pm in Clements Hall. Refreshments will be available, including hot drinks, wine and beer.

All are welcome. You can become a member of the History Group for a small sum of £5 for 2017, which gives you reduced entry (£1) to talks. Non members are also welcome, at a cost of £3 on the door.

There are a small number of free parking spaces near Clements Hall. It is also easily accessible by buses stopping in Blossom Street (walk along Moss Street opposite the Reel Cinema).
