History Visit to York

On Monday 11 June, the Rosedale Art Group and History Society combined for a private tour of Fairfax House and the exhibition of Views Of York – 1610 to the Present Day and which is on until 31 August. The exhibition celebrates the 800th anniversary of the granting of York’s first charter by King John.

The tour of the fascinating Georgian town house, described as the finest of its type in England, was conducted by the Director of the York Civic Trust, Peter Brown, who wove an informative and amusing tale of the history for the building, concluding with the exhibition of pictures of York on loan from the British Museum, British Library, the York Art Gallery and from private individuals.
