Hidden Histories

Selby is a small town with a big history. The Hidden Histories project explores the history and heritage of Selby, through unexpected streetscape installations, designed by a creative team of a writer and designer.

Hidden Histories creates a new way of engaging residents, businesses and visitors to the town.  Artwork highlights little known local history facts right through to highly historical significant events.  

The Abbey is the focus - and the people who have fought over it throughout history - as pilgrims, as invaders and as tourists, as residents have borne witness to.
