Description

AOC Archaeology Group was commissioned by Transcore Limited to undertake an Historic Building Survey of 17-21 Piccadilly, York prior to its proposed demolition. This comprised an English Heritage Level 3 building survey, including a full photographic and drawn record of the building, historic and cartographic research, and an assessment of the results. 17-21 Piccadilly is a building designed to service the trolleybus line started by York Corporation Tramways in 1920. The building features simple art-deco features but has been left in decline from the late 20th century. The building comprises a large open hall of 17 bays in brick around a steel frame with steel trusses, with a lean-to in the south-east corner and an inserted mezzanine breaking the open space of the ground floor.
