Trafalgar Street

7 Sep

There’s nothing much about Trafalgar Street which runs for no particular reason off Beverley Road. There’s a flint faced church long empty and for sale, fenced off and growing buddleia, but with some nice gargoyles. And there’s a fading memorial to a senseless murder of a father of two on New Year’s Day three years ago. And that’s about it really.

Gargoyles

26 Oct

Driffield’s ancient All Saints Church has a fine selection of small family friendly gargoyles. Here’s a couple of the cutest. These look to be in remarkably good condition and I suspect they may be modern (when I say modern I mean Victorian) replacements as the church was extensively restored by Gilbert Scott in the late 1870’s.
