Corunna House

Selby's "Corunna House" faces the River Ouse on Water Hill Lane. The photo below shows its street location.

The Civic Society information plaque, installed in 1997, describes this early 18th Century building, some of its former occupants and its use as a school. The mystery of its name is revealed.

The banner photograph above is a view of "The Nook", alongside the Waterfront Gardens and the River Ouse from an upstairs window of Corunna House. Click on it to enlarge.
