Photographer's Note

Jean (jean113) has very recently been showing us some delightful photographs of half-timbered buildings in Ludlow, Shropshire. So here is another one from the city of York, taken just a week or so before we all went into "lockdown" and were forbidden all travel on account of the threat of Coronavirus.

Now a restaurant called "Gert & Henry's", this building's address is No. 4 in the street called "Jubbergate", a name believed to have originated in the 13th century, perhaps because many of the residents in this part of the city were Jewish. The building dates from around 1600 and, although it is now free-standing, at the time of its build it would have had adjoining buildings at either side.

The building is quite large it is believed that at one time it housed six families. It has been run as a restaurant since 1929 and has been owned and cared for by the York Conservation Trust since 1957 as you can read here:
