Title 77-79 Micklegate BR
Date/Year 2019


On the 12th September 2019 a programme of Building Recording was undertaken by York Archaeological Trust at 77- 79 Micklegate, York, YO1 6LJ (SE 59900 51600). The work was undertaken for Mr and Mrs Stagman to help inform a planning application that was under consideration by the City of York Council (17/03012/FUL and amendments 19/00754/LBC and 19/00750/FUL). The building recording was solely for the ground floor of the property which is to be converted from a shop to a residential dwelling per the planning application. The property, a Grade II Listed building, was built c.1790. Alterations were made to the building during the 19th century and the store frontage added in the 20th century. Further works to alter the upper floors and the ground floor occurred during the early 21st century. During works to convert the ground floor retail area to a residential dwelling the removal of the lath and plaster ceiling, as well as internal ply board, exposed the remains of original features. This included the location of a dividing wall for the 18th century layout of the reception rooms, original brickwork and a section of skirting board, and the remains of a chimney breast and hearth.
