The Yorkshire Heritage Guardians

“Heritage” is a somewhat overused word, but strictly speaking it means something that is handed down from one person or one generation to another.

Join us at the 2023 Yorkshire Heritage Summit. Victoria Hall, Saltaire. 18th May 2023.

Here at The Yorkshire Society we take Yorkshire’s heritage very seriously so we created the Yorkshire Heritage Guardians to provide the region’s many voluntary, not for profit and charitable organisations, large and small – some of them learned societies with a history going back nearly 200 years – with a much needed means to work together to both protect and promote Yorkshire’s priceless heritage as a whole.

All share The Yorkshire Society’s passion for what makes our region great: its history, culture, landscape, nature and people.
