This resident’s record of York and its changes is one person’s attempt to represent and better understand the city of York, UK, as it changes and develops. It has covered a lot of ground. See the ‘about‘ page for more, the archives for a flavour of things, and this page for the most recent additions.
At the start of 2017 and for some months I added a page a week. Updates are now fortnightly. After years of observing the city and its changes, researching its history, following the fate of various buildings and doing my best to keep up with planning applications and council decisions I feel I’ve built up knowledge and perspective that I should keep sharing. It has been a labour of love, not a profit-making exercise. I do it because I can, and because of the people who tell me how much they value it.
Some kind readers have asked if they can show appreciation with actual money. So I’m trying this:
The other way you can assist these online efforts is by helping to publicise the information here by sharing links on social media, retweeting my tweets about it on Twitter (or even write your own, which is even more appreciated) and by adding comments if you have more information or insight on any of the subjects covered on these pages.
Thank you for your support of this ‘resident’s record of York and its changes’.
