Friends of York Walls are continuing to work towards the ultimate re-opening of Fishergate Postern Tower. We are seeking to raise funds towards this project by inviting the general public and local businesses to “Sponsor a Stone”. This major fund raising activity will be officially launched in early 2012, and we are also looking at the possibility of a “Tower Open Day” just over the York Residents Festival weekend on Saturday 28th / Sunday 29th January 2012.

If you wish to contribute to the tower fund then please look at the Sponsor a Stone page where you can fill in an application form.


The Friends of York Walls are planning a Summer Festival 2012 around the ramparts and walls. We are seeking to have a planning meeting on Monday 14th November at 7pm in Acomb Fire Station, Boroughbridge Road, York.

Any Friends that can help us with this project are asked to attend this meeting to assist us with the planning, if unable to attend and you have some suggestions please contact Keith Myers our chairman who will collate your suggestions and put them to the planning team.
