From memorable folk in the city centre to buildings, pubs and clubs (from the good old days) that are no longer there, everyone who has grown up in Wakefield holds some special memories. Here are just a few shared by you!
9. 10p a pint...all night!
Rooftop Gardens and Casanovas, twinned night clubs in the city centre, were the places to be seen in Wakefield in the 1980s.
10. The Cockle Man
From WMCs to Westgate Common - the Cockle Man was always out and about..sometimes followed by the Salvation Army lady and her collection tin.
Wakefield's chestnut seller Allan Jones was mentioned by many of you...
12. Grand Old Duke of York
The Battle of Wakefield is one of the bloodiest chapters in the city's history, and the scene of an estimated 3,000 deaths - but is perhaps best remembered as the inspiration for a popular children's nursery rhyme. Richard, Duke of York, the disputed King of England, had assembled an army of 5,000 men at Sandal Castle, ready to fight for his claim to the throne.
