Lady Row

60-72 Goodramgate: built in the early 14th century.

Built around 1320, the houses in this row are the oldest in York. They were built on the churchyard of Holy Trinity church to raise money for the church. House numbers 64-72 are much as built being of two story timber framed construction. There were originally 11 bays built, with the one on the end to the south being demolished to make way for the new gate into the churchyard in the mid-18th century. At the north end, the very end bay (part of number 60) was heightened to three stories about 1840 and the second and third bays from the north (number 60/62) were rebuilt in the 1780s. (Ref. 1)
