36 Gillygate

Back to Gillygate

Gillygate, which derives its name from St. Giles Church which was demolished after 1547, is an ancient street outside the walls; cleared in 1644; rebuilt; largely late eighteenth and early nineteenth century.

No. 36 is a Victorian building which, along with the rest of the East side of Gillygate was under threat of demolition and very run down because the City Council had proposed a scheme for demolishing the whole of that side of the street in order to give a view of the Bar Walls behind. fortunately that plan came to nothing, although many of the properties in the street had been acquired by the City Council with a view to their demolition. But with the complete change of plan, the Council devised a scheme for people to acquire their premises and restore them with the aid of Town Scheme grants.

No. 36 was acquired by the Trust in 1980.
