Bishopthorpe Local History Group


The Bisopthorpe Local History Group works on a number of local history projects. In recent months the sundial has now been replaced on the Co-op building on Main Street. We have worked together with the Bishopthorpe Millennium Trust on the development of the Pinfold Area to produce ceramic plaques to illustrate the history of Bishopthorpe. This is dependent on funding. We exhibited at the village gala and this resulted in considerable interest from local people about their houses as shown on a Government survey of 1910, as well as sales of photos and publications. A considerable photographic record has been put together by the group.


You can find out more about what is going on at Bishopthorpe Local History Group by visiting their web log at group website.
