As part of the Trust’s City Enhancement Programme, the historic plaque marking the Cholera Burial Ground near York Train Station was recently given a face-lift after damage and vandalism over years had caused the object to become worn.

Under the direction of Nick Beilby, our team fitted a new wooden molded cap, that has been added by local firm, Len Plows and Son, and the face of the plaque received treatment from conservator Alaina Schmisseur.

The plaque prior to restoration works.

A history of the site, as with our other plaques around York can be found on our website http://yorkcivictrust.co.uk/heritage/civic-trust-plaques/cholera-burial-ground/

York Civic Trust thanks all partners in the project.
