[Image taken 6.7.19] New Earswick, York. New Earswick (www.jrht.org.uk/community/new-earswick-york, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Earswick) is a place. It has an interesting history. It's people-friendly. But there is no, 'Welcome to' sign that announces to people arriving from the cycle-ped route across Bootham Stray (from the Foss Islands cycle path en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Cycle_Route_658, York) you have arrived somewhere. In fact, the signage suggests you are simply passing through, that there's nothing of interest here. I've been lobbying to change this for several years after discovering by accident that there are many reasons for this to be your destination. Or at least a stopping point. The Folk Hall (newearswickfolkhall.com/), the post office, the library, the cafe, the children's play area, the swimming pool, the nature reserve... I'd like to see information boards that include the history and a map like at Clifton Backies (see: #166682). See also: #166666
