The front cover of Paul Furness’ new pamphlet

York’s Alternative History are very proud to launch Paul Furness’ York: A Walk on the Wild Side based on walks Paul has run over the past couple of years. For a taster see this Guardian Northern blog.

In the author’s words:

Even Guy Fawkes has to shout to get himself heard in York and, to add insult to injury, he’s not in this little book either – which makes the point that what is left out of York’s rich history may be more relevant than what gets included in the “official version” that brands this tourist town a must visit experience. Within these pages you’ll find the story of the York “they” don’t want to tell you about – because it doesn’t fit the heritage image which has been invented for the express purpose of shopping! What you are about to read is none of that. Here are tales of riot, rebellion and revolution, music, poets, football and beer along with fights for women’s rights and Gay Liberation – just the story of another Friday night in York in fact!

Price £5 incl. p. and p. for single copies; £9 for 2; £12 for 3. Please send cheques, payable to ‘York Workshops’ (WOWS), to York Workshops, 8 Galtres Grove, York, YO30 8RG

York: Walk On The Wild Side is supported by York’s Alternative History and the University of Leeds and is supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, through a research project ‘How should decisions about heritage be made?’ / York: Living with History project.

  2. Hi Richard and Mike, apologies – looked like the link worked when I tested it. I’ve just copied all the important details into the blog post now. Thanks so much for your interest in York: A Walk on the Wilds Side. Once you get your copies – let us know what you think! Helen

  3. I purchased this book and paid via Paypal on March 4th and received confirmation the payment had gone through.
    Since this i have not heard anything, nor have i received my book.
    I emailed yorkalternativehistory@gmail.com on March 10th and still not heard anything.

    The book is a gift for my Grandpa who will be 90 on Friday and currently has all of the books on York baring this one.

    Please advise.
