Le Kirke Lane

This is view down Carr's Lane formerly Le Kirke Lane or Kirkgail. This is a mediaeval common lane leading down to the River Ouse and is half cobbled and half paved. The railings on the left surround what is left of  the churchyard of St Mary Bishophill Senior, the church was demolished in the 1960s. Further down are new apartments built on the site of the riverside warehouses and mills. The distant church tower is All Saints Church on Pavement.


  1. Always surprised when I find a medieval church was demolished by those great national fabric improvers city planners in the 1960's. Very few buildings form the 1960's are worth keeping for any reason.
