rangular plan. Front has 2-2-2-2-2 stone mullioned windows all in one plane, those
on ground floor having drip-moulds and the end portions being crowned by gables with
stone capping. Three storey central stone-capped gatehouse having round-arched

stone windows to second floor. Blue brick diaper work and initials to gables. The
George Street front is ungabled and has similar ranges of stone mullioned windows.

of courtyard is similar but with a Georgian sash window on the first floor (with
drip-mould raised in the centre and enclosing a mitre). Plain gable. The almshouses
were extensively restored in 1860 by Butterfield, and the upper parts of the North End

citizen of York in 1597 and panelling of 1640.
