I SEE from The Press of October 9 that Knaresborough is to commission a statue to this Mother Shipton.
I am always surprised that York has never made anything of the Shipton connection – she did, after all, live in Dringhouses while her prophecies were being made.
As far as I recall, from a biography I read as a child, there was also some connection with Clifton as well – though that may be where her husband, Toby Shipton, came from.
