Treasurer's House, York


It was pouring down when we visited the Treasurer’s House in York, so much so in fact, that I forgot to get a photo of the entrance to the house. It’s a grade I listed building owned by the National Trust and is in the centre of York near to York Minster. 

The first treasurer for the Minster was appointed in 1091 but the house was almost entirely rebuilt in the early 17th century. The house was built directly over one of the main Roman roads in Roman York; one Roman column base can be found in the cellar of the Treasurer’s House, with one being used in the main hall. The house is reportedly haunted by several ghost, including a group of Roman soldiers who have been seen in the cellar of the property.
