Jane Ellis has organised a full day in Malton – next week, so please book with Jane asap.

Thursday 10th August 2017: A day taking in the interesting features of this Ryedale market town, with guided walks in the morning and afternoon looking at the town’s notable buildings and its colourful history dating from the time of the Roman fort of Delgovicia.

We begin at 11.00am with tea, coffee and home-made biscuits at the beautiful Old Lodge Hotel of 1602, with a history of this impressive building. £3.35 per person, payable on the day. (Pre-booking required).

We will take a look behind the scenes in the art-deco Palace Theatre & Cinema, and hear about the town’s Charles Dickens connection.

Following lunch in one of the many eating establishments of your choice, we will convene at the recently refurbished museum on Yorkersgate, where a volunteer member of staff will take us on the afternoon tour (suggested donation of £5 for museum funds).

Malton is accessible by bus and train, and has 3 long-stay car parks. Details will be e-mailed to members on request.
