Selby has a rich and diverse history. It was a town with a thriving and varied industrial base. However, in the last couple of decades, as these industries have fallen into decline, and structures have fallen into disrepair, the knowledge of the town’s proud past has diminished.
The Hidden Heritage leaflets encourage locals and visitors to the town alike to stroll through this history as the printed narrative unravels the story as it unfolds.
Following on from the original series of 5 leaflets released in 2009, the Hidden Heritage project have proudly released a further series of 4 leaflets in April 2011. These cover yet more aspects of Selby’s story.”
