This morning I was very proud to unveil the first Yorkshire Boundary sign.
After my unveiling speech my wife Ruth sang Symphony for Yorkshire
Visiting The Sign
The sign is on the A60 Worksop Road a couple of miles south of the village of Tickhill. I recommend that visitors park on Styrrup Lane, wear a high vis jacket and walk to the sign with caution as the A60 is a fast road.
I am delighted to announce that the first Yorkshire boundary sign will be unveiled on Yorkshire Day on August 1st.
We are delighted to announce that the first ever Yorkshire boundary sign will be erected in the coming weeks.Donations are invited for further Yorkshire signs as part of the Yorkshire Boundary Sign Project. Please state that the donations are for the Yorkshire Boundary Sign Project.
Over the past week there has been discussion regards Yorkshire boundary signs in the Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council area south of the River Tees.As Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council administers part of Yorkshire and County Durham we believe it appropriate that signs are not only erected to mark the Yorkshire boundary but also the County Durham boundary.Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council have been informed that the required finance can be sourced as part of the Yorkshire Boundary Sign Project.
Discussion is on going.
The new North Riding of Yorkshire Flag was today flying from the Diamond Jubilee Flagpole of St Leonard’s Parish Church Loftus-in-Cleveland (Borough of Redcar and Cleveland). It was flown for the Loftus Wool Fayre, a community event in this ancient wool town. It will be flown again on Yorkshire Day.

We are pleased to hear that the West Riding flag will fly from Whitehall on Saturday 29 March for West Riding day.
We have provided the following statement to the DCLG:
“We are delighted that the West Riding flag flies from Whitehall on West Riding day in memory of the Battle of Towton. The West Riding is the industrial and commercial heartland of Yorkshire. The largest of the three Ridings, it connects the River Humber in the East to the Pennies in the West, where its’ boundary is only 7 miles from the Irish sea.”
