The Friends of York Walls is a voluntary non-profit making group. The group aims to help promote, manage and develop York’s historic defences (including the Bar Walls, St Mary’s Abbey’s medieval boundary walls, Clifford’s Tower and the Castle’s old walls) for the benefit of local residents and visitors. We 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.
We welcome new “Friends”. Joining The Friends of York Walls is FREE but we encourage donations, however small. You can register as either an adult “Friend” or as a junior [under18s] “Friend”. Only “Adult Friends” have limited (Non CIO) voting rights.
