I’ve always had an ‘about’ page on this website, and I rewrite it every now and then, as the site has changed a lot since 2004. When it started it was just me putting photos online and writing about them, and my wanderings. Since then it’s contained history, memories, research, a whole page about a couple of old lamp posts, musings on events, opinions, thoughts on the Local Plan, more opinions, quite a lot about Lendal Bridge. And old photos, and albums of more recent ones, and bits of my old scrapbook.
I envisage that the opinions and concerns regarding threats to the place as we know it will become more frequent, as these are difficult times for our local heritage. I realise this is of less interest to many people on my mailing list who I know live elsewhere now.
I am really interested though in hearing your views. What, for you, is York Stories about?
And, perhaps, if something comes to mind, which is your favourite page on this website?
