A veteran tree near Helmsley

- and sustainable forests for the future in Langdale Forest.
Each session costs £5.00 per head. For further details and to sign up, please contact the PLACE Office (e-mail: email@example.com)
The Mosque in the City
Our latest publication, The Mosque in the City: Bradford and its Islamic Architecture, by George Sheeran, has just been published!
This is the first study of the architecture of the mosque in Bradford and its impact on the cityscape. Both purpose-built mosques and the conversion of existing buildings to mosques are considered, together with an explanation of the key architectural and religious features. There is also a discussion of the cultural effects of Islam and a historical comparison with other faith groups that have settled in Bradford and the impact this has had on the urban environment. The book is available from PLACE at a price of £6.00 + £2.50 P & P. To order a copy, please send a cheque for the appropriate amount, payable to PLACE, to: PLACE Office, York St John University, Lord Mayor’s Walk, York, YO31 7EX.
