Students from Bootham School visited Fishergate Postern Tower on Tuesday 1st July to experience some surveying work on the interior of the tower. They measured and recorded some of the damaged stonework. It is hoped that their survey will then form a part of the Conservation Plan for the tower and could be used to assist in seeking grants from organisations such as the Heritage Lottery Fund. The exercise was led by Glen McGowan, Chair of The Friends of York Walls.

The Friends of York Walls are working towards the restoration of and regular re-opening of Fishergate Postern Tower. They are seeking to raise funds for this project with a “Sponsor a Stone” scheme, and other fundraising activities and grants. See –
