Changing Faces: Changing Fortunes: Fossgate and Walmgate
28th October 2018 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pmFree – £10
Sunday 28 October (10.30am – 12 noon)
Meet: inside Walmgate Bar at 10.30am
Dr Peter Gouldsborough, of the University of York and a member of the Trust’s Planning Committee, will lead this walking tour, in which the story of Fossgate and Walmgate will be told through the people and the buildings which have shaped its history. Fossgate and Walmgate was one of four routes into the Roman City of Eboracum, this via its south-east gateway, the Porta principalis sinistra which was situated in present-day King’s Square.
This story is not just about deprivation and disease, it is just as much about philanthropy, commerce, improvement and shifting populations, all of which have helped to change the face of these two streets —this route – and its fortunes.
Tickets are non-refundable.
