Group Description

This is an invitation only group recording through photographs the views from and of York's Bars, Walls, and Defenses - including St Mary's Abbey, Clifford’s Tower and The Castle. This archive of "Scenes" from the walls will form a "Snapshot in Time" - Winter 2013.

The Bars and Walls of York are the finest and most complete of any town in England. At two miles the walls are the longest in the UK and are one of York’s top free visitor attractions. Over a million people a year take a walk through 1900 years of history on York’s city walls. Built in Roman times, they have been added to and rebuilt over time and now have parts from across the centuries.

This photographic resource is for the Friends of York Walls (FOYW) which is a voluntary non-profit making group who aim to help promote, manage and develop York's Walls and Defenses (including the Bar Walls, St Mary's Abbey, Clifford’s Tower and The Castle) for the benefit of local residents and visitors. FOYW organise and undertake practical work and organise public events in co-operation with the City of York Council and other like-minded groups or individuals. We seek to establish York Walls as a major worldwide attraction, one that the residents of York can take pride in, and residents and visitors can enjoy to the full.
