Hull's Georgian New Town

SPEAKER: Richard Clarke

Thursday, September 15 at 10am.
Wrecking Ball Arts Centre,

The excavation of the New Dock (later Queens Dock) in the 1760s was the first large-scale extension of Hull’s physical area beyond the 14th century town walls, here into the parish of Sculcoates. In turn this led to new streets being created to the north and west of the Dock, these principally tenanted by persons commercially connected with the Dock. For a while these areas remained exclusively Georgian in character.

The presentation will discuss the historical and geographical context of this development as well as its characteristics and surviving evidence.
