View of Wakefield chantry bridge

  • Posted On: 14 May 2018

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.
