The York Tap by fishers

The York Tap

Another interesting old building in a quiet corner at York railway station, the York Tap was first opened in 1907 as tea rooms. I haven't been able to trace when that function ended, but I believe that by the 1970s it was used for the sale of railway relics. It later became the location of a model railway exhibition which lasted for around 20 years, before the model railway was moved to a location in Lincolnshire.

Following the success of the Euston Tap in London, and the Sheffield Tap, the building was renovated by a company called Pivovar and opened as the York Tap towards the end of 2011. I caught it here on a relatively quiet day. It sells a wide range of beers - there are 32 taps on the bar!

Katharine is now home from hospital, and tomorrow a small fridge and antibiotics will be delivered and a nurse will come to show us how to administer a daily dose through a line that has been installed in her arm. It will then be a weekly visit to the hospital for a checkup. Thank you all for your positive encouragement and care for both of us, it is very much valued.

Looks an interesting building.
It will be lovely for Katherine to be home and hopefully day by day she will improve with the antibiotic treatment.

Thirty-two different beers - just right to celebrate Katharine's homecoming!

Thank you all for your lovely comments, they are very much appreciated.

Katharine sends a big thank you to you all - we are now settling into the new medical regime here at home, and hopefully before too long she will be fully fit again.

Because I haven't been posting much this year I have been out of touch with how Katharine has been getting along. So sorry to read she has been back in hospital and hope she is now finally on the road to recovery again.

Nice to hear from you. Katharine was doing really well and had been home 5 weeks when she had another bout of severe pain, so another emergency admission to hospital. This time they discovered an unusual and deep seated infection. They now have a less common antibiotic to be taken intravenously for 5-6 weeks. Fortunately this can be done at home, and she is already feeling quite a bit better. She has been home since Thursday.

Thank you both - I think this is a lovely old building and that it has been nicely restored. I didn't go in, Iwas too busy taking more photos in and around the station.
