Ogleforth

No. 8, a three-storey brick building of c. 1820, with a pantiled roof, may have been offices for Thackray's Brewery. The 1852 OS map shows it bisected by a ward boundary, and half of the ground floor is only accessible from St. William's College, whilst the entrance doorway at first floor is the only access to that level.

A modern external staircase and balcony partly mask the lower part of the N. elevation. The two upper floors form a three-bay composition, with recessed brick panels flanking and framing the entrance doorway. The elevation shows the scars of a late 19th-century roof. The side elevations have two sash windows to both floors on the E. above a ground-floor tripartite window, and three sash windows to each floor on the W.

Goodramgate

No. 22, built in the late 17th century, one room deep and of three storeys and attics, with a transverse staircase and chimney at the rear, was refronted in the second half of the 19th century and re-roofed with slate. The two-bay street elevation is stuccoed. A late 17th-century staircase with bulbous balusters survives above first-floor level. A series of brick buildings of 19th-century date extends behind the house, formerly part of Thackray's Brewery.
