Was out in town on Saturday Morning, and came across this fella, never seen him before, but it's our Town Crier (didn't know we had one!). Not sure about the composition, but it's earned me Photo of the week here.

Here's what the town council has to say:

Town Criers generally have existed since the days of William the Conqueror. It is very likely that Richmond had a Town Crier within a few years of the Castle being built in 1071. Within Richmond the Crier was always known as the Bellman, the original assignation, but today we refer to him as the Town Crier.

The position was revived some years ago and the present incumbent is Councillor Barry Heap. He proclaims from points North, East, South and West in the centre of the town and Barry can be heard at the bottom of the Market Place (outside the Yorkshire Bank), outside the Kings Head Hotel, half way up Finkle Street and at the Market Cross. His proclamations are in rhyming verse and he can be heard on most Sundays throughout the summer, usually at noon. Barry is a member of the Loyal Company of Town Criers.

All C&Cs welcome

Thanks for looking

Fame at last, Den! A strong portrait, I like the arm going diagonally into the corner from the face.
