Do you have memories of swimming in the River Foss or Ouse? Do you have stories you would like to share? We would love to hear from you!
‘Swimming in York’s rivers: an oral history’ is part of the My Castle Gateway and a collaboration between York Wild Swim and the Castle Gateway Living Well with Water Network. By exploring memories of swimming in the rivers, we want to explore how we can use the past to promote and celebrate our rivers today – encouraging river safety, accessibility as well as possibilities for swimming.
Two students on the MA in Art Gallery and Museum Studies at the University of Leeds, Sarah Illing and Hanyi Jin will be leading the project.
If you have memories you would like to share, please get in touch either by replying to this post or by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
