Shops, pubs and industry in Bishophill

Susan Major

Shop Buckingham St PS Card Index

Our next talk is on Friday 19 January 2024, at 7.45pm in Clements Hall. Please note our doors will be open at 7.30 pm. 

Much of Bishophill’s housing dates from the 19th century and still remains, in short terraced residential streets, giving it a distinctive identity. Within these, the corner shop was an important feature of everyday life in the local community, with many in Bishophill and along Skeldergate over the last 200 years. Almost all of these are now gone, with intriguing shapes in the brickwork hinting at old times. Our next book will feature the shops, pubs and old industries in Bishophill, and Susan Major will be highlighting some of the latest findings from our researches.

You can become a member of the History Group for £5 for 2024, which gives you reduced entry (£1) to talks. Non-members are also welcome, at a cost of £3 on the door.

All welcome, a bar and hot drinks will be available.

Please note in 2024 we are offering online only membership for £5. This type of membership entitles the member to view recordings of the talks at home on a computer or tablet. The online member would receive the link automatically as soon as the recording is made, usually a week or so after the live talk. We record all the talks that we are allowed to by the speakers. Very occasionally a speaker does not wish to be recorded. (All five talks in 2023 were recorded.)
