Summer Outing to Kingston upon Hull

The rain didn’t stop a coachload of RWG and Bedale U3A members from enjoying their day, efficiently organised by Susan Perkins. As you can see from the above photo, Hull’s status as City of Culture 2017 has attracted very many extra visitors this year.


There was plenty to see and do, so people went their own separate ways for most of the day.


Some chose to admire the architecture of the 14th century Holy Trinity Church, now Hull Minster.


It is the oldest brick-built building in the city and there are claims it is the largest parish church in England.


The politician and philanthropist William Wilberforce is one of the city’s most famous sons. Wilberforce House charts the history of slavery and its eventual abolition.

Our friendly group meets once a fortnight in the Old Deanery on Minstergate, opposite Ripon Cathedral and is always open to new members from the Ripon area and beyond. Whether your interest is in poetry or prose, novels, short stories, plays, wacky humour, a more analytical style of writing, or just listening for the time being, you're very welcome.
