Grey Day in York

The ancient street of the Butchers of York, mentioned in the Domesday Book of William the Conqueror. It takes its name from the word ‘Shamel’, meaning the stalls or benches on which the meat was displayed – later versions of which can still be seen. It was rebuilt about 1400, when it assumed its present character.

  1. I really like these shots – the black and white treatment works really well. Especially well on the street scene below the text. York is a photographer’s dream, it has been a very long time since I was there, and would love to go back.

  2. Love York, love coming back next year on vacation. Lived there as a child many years ago before moving to Canada

    1. I agree, It’s such a beautiful city no matter what time of year, Yorkshire in general is a glorious county to visit…even better when your looking at it through a lens.
