On Saturday 14th July 2012 The Friends of York Walls escorted the Lord Mayor of York Councillor Keith Hyman, and Mrs Karen Hyman the Lady Mayoress, on a walk along some of York’s historic walls.
The civic party was first entertained by the York Concert Band on the front lawns of The Kings Mansion before setting off on a “walls walk” through the Museum Gardens to Lendal Bridge and the start of the city walls. There they were entertained by a busker and given tea and biscuits courtesy of the Cedar Court Hotel. More buskers entertained the walking party at Micklegate Bar and then at the Bitchdaughter Tower where the party was given wine and biscuits. The walls walk finished at Fishergate Postern Tower when the civic party sponsored a stone and climbed the spiral staircase to view the upper floors. Throughout the event collections were taken in aid of “The Lord Mayors Charities”.
