About Barley Hall:
This place has a fabulous story. The house was built in the 14th and 15th centuries. Parts date back to a priory built in the mid 1300s. It was once the site of York's town council and the home of it's Lord Mayor.
Then, it was forgotten.
It ended up buried within a cluster of derelict workshops. It was only when a developer bought the property and began to inspect it, in the 1980s that this rare, surviving medieval townhouse was discovered. It has been saved and restored by the York Archaelogical Trust.
