My all time favorite city!!
Title: Micklegate is pictured here in the early 1850's. The gateway to the Holy Trinity Priory was demolished in 1854 and Priory Street was built on the site of the Priory precincts, which were called Trinity Gardens and had originally been purchased by Sir John Goodricke of Ribston in the 17th Century.
Little Stonegate. York's streets that have Viking roots are 'gates' after the Viking word for street. Stonegate is so-called as this was the route from the river to the MInster with the stones used in its construction in the 15th century. The street parallels the main Roman crossing and entrance to the Roman fortress of Eboracum from the 1st to 5th centuries.
