No need to book, and entry to FPT is free – but donations to Friends of York Walls and tower repairs will be very welcome. Unfortunately access beyond the ground floor is not suitable for the disabled.

Fishergate Postern Tower, at the end of Piccadilly, is a 4 storey stone tower built around 1504 and has a quirky narrow spiral staircase linking the interesting rooms and with views of the roof structure. The FPT opening will be staffed by Friends of York Walls volunteers who will be on hand to help, and to tell you about the history of the tower. You can also learn about plans for the future of the tower and other 2017 planned activities.

Copies of the FoYW book “A Walking Guide to York’s City Walls” will be on sale. You can also “Sponsor a Stone” on either the West Wall or the North Wall to raise funds for the restoration of and repairs to the tower.

We need more volunteers and also people to join the Management Committee and Trustees. If you are interested please email us at
