"A short note" Whip-Ma-Whop-Ma-Gate Tip by iandsmith
Whip-Ma-Whop-Ma-Gate, York: 9 reviews and 14 photos
The shortest street in York was known as 'Whitnourwhatnourgate' during the sixteenth century but took its present name when it became the location of a pillory and whipping cart where the city's petty criminals were publicly flogged.
Though some tout it as the shortest street in Great Britain it hasn't quite made that yet and the name is supposed to have meant "What a street".
Directions: Between Colliergate and Fossgate
