Discover the history and architecture of Wood Street on a guided walk led by Wakefield Civic Society President, Kevin Trickett MBE.

As part of our special programme for Heritage Open Days, join Wakefield Civic Society for a free guided walk around the Wood Street area to explore the architecture and history of the street.

Find out how Wood Street got its name!

Hear about how the street developed from a narrow yard to be the main ‘civic’ street of the city!

Look up and admire the decorative details of some of the most prominent buildings in Wakefield!

The walk starts at 2:30pm, meeting outside the Town Hall in Wood Street, will last between 90 minutes and two hours.

Everyone taking part in the walk will receive a free copy of the Society's book Wood Street: The Heart of Wakefield (usually £3.50).
