A Walk Around York: Bedern Passage

A Walk Around York: Bedern Passage

In the 1970’s only 3,500 people lived within the walls of York, compared to the 10,000 that resided during the middle ages. The Bedern of York has a spotted history at best.

Bedern was originally part of the Minster Precinct but in the 1840’s Bedern became a slum, mostly occupied by Irish immigrants – two thirds of whom only had one room for the entire family.

As make our way along the Bedern Path we headed towards a newly formed Snickleway at the Bedern Path.

Leaving the Bedern and crossing over St Andrewgate, we come across St Andrewgate Hall on Spen Lane and a Snickleway the hooks around the back of the hall which is called Penny Lane. Here’s what the lane looked like in 1983.

This was original  part of the hall the Penny Lane looks very different now a days.

  1. What a treat this blogpost is!
    York is one of my favorite cities.
    I visited it many moons ago when I was a student and would backpack all across Britain, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

    Thank You~

  2. Fascinating, I love the tour and information. I’ve been to England, but stayed to the bigger cities and touristy places. I would totally love to return one day and really see the villages and smaller towns in the country.
