Access to Hull Trinity House
Is it possible to accaess Hull Trinity House records in person or is it only possible using their own researchers? In the same vein are individual visits allowed or only in organised party visits?
Re: Access to Hull Trinity House
I am not quite sure which Trinity House you mean.
Hull Trinity House is a school. Public access to records is not generally available in academic institutions. Group visits are also unlikely, but you can find contact details here: http://www.hulltrinity.net/contact_us/index.htm
The Trnity House Charitable Foundation has its contact details listed here:
If you meant the Trinity House which deals with lighthouses and staff, however, that is a different matter. It is based in London. There is no suggestion on the relevant geneaology page that Trinity House research is undertaken by anyone other than staff:
This page also details which records re actually held on site. Many were destroyed during Second World War air-raids
There is a 'contact us' link top right of the page for enquiries.
Re: Access to Hull Trinity House
I know Trinity House well but it is not open to the public. Are you in the UK? Of you are ring the local history studies office on 01482 300300 and they will advise you how to take this further. If you are outside the UK let me know and I will find out for you.
Travel Tips for Kingston upon Hull
‘The big screen’ in Queen Victoria Square...
Will Queen Victoria ever feel like Times Sqaure? Hardly.
Ah yes, Hull City Council in their infinite wisdom, in what has been dubbed the ‘fattest city in the country’ by many a survey, have gone and spent £750,000 on a massive TV screen for the city center in Queen Victoria Sqaure. Instead of highlighting community news or events they're shunted to the side of the screen. Because during the day it basically does exactly what it says on the tin. It shows TV. On a big screen. So lets get this right; fat couch-potato population and you just go and put a bloody-great TV in the city center. Genius eh? Should a big sporting event of major news event be occurring then it is an extremely useful community resource as crowds of people will stop and actually pay real interest, but on a dreary day when it’s left showing BBC1 housewife-programming throughout the day to bemused shoppers passing through the square, it basically only entertains the local vagrants or partners patiently waiting for their other halves.
And all this when the council-sponsored art house cinema called Hull Screen is having to justify its existence to continue funding or face closure. Nice to know local government has its priorities right.
Quick guide to understanding locals...
Hullites have warped the ‘Queen’s English’ and ‘Broad Yorkshire’ into a tragically unflattering accent. To understand natives, here’s how Hullites draw-out and flatten their vowels:
A - Ayyyya
E – Eyyyya
I - Iyyyya
O - Ohhhh
U – You-we
General Hullite greeting is “I-ya, y’alriiiight?”
Spurn Point is about 40 miles from Hull and well worth an afternoon's picnic if the weather is good. If it isn't then you are likely to find yourself washed into the North Sea. Don't worry, there's a lifeboat station there to rescue you.
Unfortunately VT doesn't have Spurn as a bone-fide 'location' so my main reportage about spurn is squatting on my Hull page...to read all my words of wisdom see the link below:
Next to the University of Hull stands the University of Humberside. They are really close to each other so don't be confused ;-)
All I know about this university is that they have good food. The refectory there is excellent! Lots of students from the university of Hull simply cross the road to have their lunch over there...
Coming from a country where eating is part of our culture, I was really scared to spent 6 month eating in UK (have you ever tasted the mint sauce? ;-).
This place was a good surprise, in short rather unexpensive and decent food!!
Shall we get off the beaten...
Shall we get off the beaten track now? Ready to be scared! Take a Hull Ghost Walk “Scares and Scandals”.
