Shambles

Prior to visiting some York friends we were told of

The Shambles…

So a couple of images from The Shambles, in York.

Perhaps not quite what was expected for the challenge,

however as Shambles also refers to a butchers slaughterhouse….  🙂

Maybe in Old York this was the home of butchers.

Perhaps still is!

Google suggests that “The Shambles is a general term

for a maze of twisting, narrow lanes.  

The lane actually called ‘The Shambles’, is perhaps

the best preserved medieval street in the world.

The Shambles was mentioned in

the Doomsday Book of William the Conqueror in 1086.
