YAHS has donated a small oil painting of Wakefield chantry bridge c. 1790 - the view including the soke mill and Aire and Calder offices - to the Gissing Trust. It will join other early views of the town on display at The Gissing Centre, which commemorates the Wakefield-born novelist best known for New Grub Street. Really pleased to have found an appropriate home for this charming historical source.
Congratulations to David Asquith, elected YAHS president at yesterday's AGM. The president's email address has been changed to email@example.com.
