A walk around the snickelways of York

 

The oldest parts of Barley Hall date from about 1360, when the Hall was built as the York townhouse of Nostell Priory, the monastery near Wakefield in West Yorkshire. A new wing was added to the building in about 1430. Soon after, the Hall became the home of a leading York citizen, William Snawsell, Goldsmith, Alderman and Lord Mayor of York.

This is an historical delight Paul
paul: I've always been too mean to pay to go inside
Nice shot, Paul - I spent a lot of time in York during my National Service days, but never got to see this!
paul: It isn't well publicised. I only found it when doing this walk
It loks like an old building of this style suitably renovated in recent times.
