Shadows in the Bricks: the old shops of South Bank in York

Shadows in the Bricks front coverFor our next talk on Friday 31 January Susan Major will be talking about her latest book.

Ever wondered about features of our neighbourhood, such as why some groups of houses are different to their neighbours, and why certain street corners have a different shape? Have you noticed that many of the streets have historical names? Did you know that some well-known music acts played their early gigs here, and the tradition continues? And who was Count de Burgh? These are traces of our history, leaving an indelible mark on South Bank.

The talk starts at 7.30 pm at Clements Hall.
