We are all delighted that Darrell Buttery has been honoured with the award of an MBE for services to heritage in York.
Darrell is a past Chairman, our immediate past President and is an active Life member of York Civic Trust, annually hosting events to raise funds for the Trust and York Minster Fund. Members will know him well from his regular tours of the churches of York.
Darrell’s love of York is evident in his support of local organisations; a governor and curator of pictures of the company of Merchant Adventurers, chair for several years of the York Georgian Society. He has been a member of the City’s Conservation Advisory Panel for about 16 years.
He has written several publications, including The Vanished Buildings of York (1984) and Pictures of York Minster (2007) and has kept a York diary for more than 40 years, creating a unique urban record currently held in the Borthwick Archives.
