Butchers, Bakers and Candlestick Makers


Local author and oral historian Van Wilson presents an engaging account of one of York’s most historic areas, The Shambles and adjacent Colliergate. The Shambles is famous for its butchers’ shops, which feature in the book, alongside other establishments including rope-makers and wood carvers, ironmongers and chemists, eating houses and pubs, bookshops and a fortune teller! With considerable historical research and previously unpublished photographs, the book will appeal to anybody interested in York’s history and social development.
