Wednesday 08 May
18:30 - 20:30
This walk will look at ten buildings in the City of London from 1916 to 2017 - one from each decade. Each building has a story to tell and between them, they illustrate how the City has evolved over the past one hundred years - not just in the way it looks, but also what goes on within its walls. We will see some 'firsts' and 'lasts', some buildings everyone has heard of and some obscure gems, styles from art-nouveau to post-modern, the site of the City's most prolonged and bitter planning dispute and the shop where James Bond bought his umbrellas. Architects will range from the well-known (e.g. Lutyens and Richard Rogers) to those where you wonder why you have never heard of them once you see their work. The walk will explain how and why most of the buildings to be seen gained a 'listing' from Historic England (formerly English Heritage). The walk will be circular, a bit over two miles in length and probably take just over two hours. It will be all on one level apart from two flights of steps that will have to be taken to gain the best view of one of the buildings. If this causes anyone any difficulty, they can be guided to stay at ground level, miss the building in question and re-join the walk at the next building. We have limited places, and they will be on a first come first served basis. Please note that there will be a £5 fully-refundable deposit charged per place. It is customary for us to donate deposits to benefit students at York, but should you prefer to receive a refund, please let us know within 48 hours of attending the event and we will be delighted to arrange it.
