Good evening from York, England! Blimey...what a cracker this is of one of my favourite places in all of Britain. I quite fancy a walk along this ancient wall in the summer....and such history! The original walls were built around 71 AD, when the Romans erected a fort (castra) near the banks of the River Ouse. The city or ‘bar’ walls of York are the most complete example of medieval city walls still standing in England today. Beneath the medieval stonework lie the remains of earlier walls dating as far back as the Roman period. The Roman walls survived into the 9th century when, in AD 866, York was invaded by the Danish Vikings. Vikings! Again! The cheeky sods buried the existing Roman wall under an earth bank and topped with a palisade – a tall fence of pointed wooden stakes. The wooden palisade was replaced in the 13th and 14th centuries with this lovely stone wall we see today. And who can forget the magnificent York Minster and The Shambles. ‘The Shambles’ is sometimes used as a general term for the maze of twisting, narrow lanes which make York so charming. At its heart is the lane actually called the Shambles, arguably the best preserved medieval street in the world. It was mentioned in the Doomsday Book of William the Conqueror in 1086. Many of the buildings on the street today date back to the late fourteenth and fifteenth century (around 1350-1475)... truly stunning.. what a great place to visit.
