Fossgate Banner Under Construction

Design of Fossgate Banner, PPIY Architects.

A major project of the City Enhancement Programme, the new permanent steel banner for the entrance to Fossgate, is close to a successful completion.

After two years of planning, the new Fossgate Banner is under construction at the workshop of Barker & Patterson of Hull. Permission for the banner was granted by City of York Council in April 2017.

The banner has been designed with the history of Fossgate as a fish market in mind. The site was a fish market from the Middle Ages and the fish that will be depicted are known to have been sold in Medieval York, as a result of archaeological investigations.

It will replace the temporary plastic banner between The Terrace and Sutler’s with installation expected in the coming weeks.
