LETTERS - Buildings overlooked

editorial image

THE new pedestrian signposts recently installed by the council across the city centre will, according to the council, direct visitors and pedestrians to key sights and destinations.

What a pity then, that our council have chosen to ignore the two oldest buildings in the city, and also the two buildings which would arguably promote some of the most important aspects of the historic heritage of the city of Wakefield. I refer of course to the Cathedral Church of All Saints’ and the Chantry Chapel on Wakefield Bridge.

In this year when the council is predicting that thousands of people will visit the city following the opening of The Hepworth Wakefield as a major visitor attraction, why have these two important buildings been sadly overlooked?
