Powell's Yard, York by fishers

Powell's Yard, York

I recently shared several photos of interesting pub signs in York (at least I found them interesting). One of them was on the Snickleway pub in Goodramgate - http://365project.org/fishers/365/2020-11-20

I decided to have a look at the real viewpoint from where the picture on the sign was taken, and here it is, Powell's Yard, which is found through a narrow entrance beside the Snickleway pub .

The building on the left is the side of a rather special old building next to the Snickleway pub, with lots of attractive timber framing. In the centre, to the right of the green door is the rather anonymous passage from Goodramgate, while on the right is what is currently the home of Earworm Records shop, where a wide selection of new and old vinyl records can be found.

I have a memory of Kite's restaurant being around there many years ago. Long gone now, of course. I love all the snickelways and alleys in York. Doorways to adventure! Grandma Battey's yorkshire pudding house in the square by the market was favourite when I was a student. Another sight long gone but glorious in the memory!

Thank you all for your comments and favs, they are very much appreciated.

These places are full of character, and can form useful short cuts when finding a quick way through the city centre, although this particular snickelway is a dead end.

I can remember Grandma Batty's, it was a very popular place. Before that it was the White Rose, a very traditional restaurant which was one of the few places where it was possible to eat a traditional roast beef and Yorkshire pudding meal.

I've learned something new with your word twittens. It's amazing how many local words there are for these alleys.
