City of York

The City of York is a unitary authority in the north of England, in the Vale of York. It borders onto North Yorkshire and the East Riding of Yorkshire. In Roman times, this area was the administrative centre for "Britannia Inferior".

The River Ouse flows through Acaster Malbis, York, Clifton, Nether Poppleton and Overton. Its tributary, the River Foss flows through Strensall and Haxby and joins the Ouse in the centre of York. The River Derwent, Yorkshire forms the eastern boundary of the authority between Stamford Bridge and Storwood.

The authority has 27 Conservation Areas, no less than 2084 Listed Buildings[?] and 20 Scheduled Ancient Monuments in its care.
