Full Description

National School, now Citizens' Advice Bureau. 1853 with late C19 and C20 alterations and extensions. Brick with stone dressings. Slate roof. Elizabethan style. EXTERIOR: one and 2 storeys, with 2 gables facing forwards. The gables have saddlebacked copings, and the coping of the slightly recessed central bay is stepped upwards. The windows are double chamfered with mullions and with glazing divided into small rectangular panes. In front of the left-hand gable there is a single-storey projection which has a coping which rises in the centre above a window of 4 lights with transom. The right-hand return wall of this projection has a tall C20 inserted opening which contains a lower doorway. The main gable above has a small chamfered opening at the apex, and a 2-light mullioned window. A continuous string course rises above both gable windows. The central bay has a recess, probably intended for a plaque, below its coping, and on the ground floor, below a second string course, it has a cross window with mullion and transom. The upper part of the right-hand gable is similar to the left-hand one, except that below the 2 upper lights the window widens and has 4 lights. The lower part of the window is cut through by a mid C20 doorway. Chimney visible between the 2 gables towards the rear of the building. INTERIOR: not inspected. Included for group value with the City Walls (qv) and other buildings on Blossom Street. (Murray H: Nathaniel Whittock's Bird's-eye View of the City of York in 1850: York: 1988-: 40).
