Piecing together the history of Hull

A call for memories

A63 Castle Street - call for memories

We’re asking for the public’s help on our quest to piece together the history of Hull.

We’ve already found some intriguing clues from the past as part of our archaeology work but now we’re asking for your help.

We want you to send in any photographs, footage and any snippets which could feature in a video looking at Hull’s history and how it shaped the city we see today.

The early findings from the archaeology work have been fascinating and we want to expand on that by calling on the people of Hull to kindly share their memories. They can help us shine a light on the city’s rich history with any old photographs, videos and snippets they can spare.

We will be producing a video about Hull’s past and the public can bring it to life. It will complement nicely the work taking place on the ground.

Fascinating information has already come to the fore as part of our work being carried out in partnership with Balfour Beatty, Oxford Archaeology, Humber Field Archaeology, Hull City Council, Historic England and Hull Minster. 

You can send your memories of Hull to A63CastleStreet.Hull@highwaysengland.co.uk or Fran Oliver, Highways England, Lateral, 8 City Walk, Leeds, LS11 9AT.

Please read the terms and conditions and include a copy along with a contact number with your submission by Friday 26 March 2021.
