"Rowing and rooflines in the fog..." York Travelogue by leics
York Travel Guide: 1,643 reviews and 4,034 photos
It was a misty, moisty November day when I visited York. But I still took photos...York's magnificently mixed architecture fascinates me.
It's very easy to only look at ground floors and not notice the building above them: that's where you will see the architectural features which give away the age and the history.
As for the numerous rowers chugging their way up the Ouse to their starting positions...well, rowing in grey, chilly November fog doesn't appeal to me, but there's nowt so queer as folk! :-)
Overhanging upper storeys on timber frames = 1400s to early 1700s. These are later rather than earlier: they have three storeys.
Up and down the rooflines go, according to when the houses were built...
Victorian red brick and mock-Gothic embellishment: definitely late 1800s.
Bay windows and pointed gable ends...1800s (the red brick gives it away)
Beautifully tiled exterior; almost certainly mid-late 1800s.
The subsidence tells you this is an old building...probably early 1700s.
Four-square red-brick town house. Probably not Victorian but pretty near. Late Georgian?
