Evening Visit to Wakefield Heritage Action Zone – Wednesday, July 17, 2024

We meet outside Wakefield Westgate Railway Station at 6.15 pm.

From here Kevin Tricket, President of Wakefield Civic Society, will lead the walk around the Westgate Heritage Action Zone where a 4-year project to refurbish key buildings and parts of the public realm has just been completed.

He will reveal some of the fascinating history of the Westgate area which includes buildings that range from medieval timber-framed properties to the ultra-modern.

The walk will be based on a book Kevin wrote for Wakefield Civic Society as part of the Heritage Action Zone project. Anyone wishing to buy a copy of the book for £3.50 can do so on the night. 

The tour will last approximately 90 minutes to two hours, returning to Westgate where we can enjoy supper at the Black Horse, a busy traditional city pub, built in 1818 and of historic interest.
