Barley Hall is a unique survival in York, a city of wonderful buildings.

It is a medieval building in the centre of the city, forgotten until a few years ago, concealed as it was under a jumble of run-down derelict offices and workshops.

Excavation in the 1980s revealed that under this jumble was a surviving example of a medieval townhouse, originally the town house of the Priors of Nostell but later to be the townhouse of its best known inhabitant, Alderman William Snawsell, goldsmith and Mayor of York.

It has now been restored to how it looked at the time of Alderman Snawsell, towards the end of the fifteenth century.
