Eden Heritage Ltd was commissioned to undertake a Level 2 Historic Building Survey of 56 Goodramgate, York. The survey was undertaken as a condition of listed building consent for internal and external alterations in connection with the conversion of the attic space to create a flat. No’s 56 and 58 are of the same late 18th century construction date, with later additions and alterations, being constructed on the site of medieval plots. The building consisted of two properties which were separated at ground level by a passageway. An assessment of documentary sources has indicated that historically Goodramgate was not numbered the same as it is now, which has meant that information obtained regarding No. 56 does not relate to the building that is the subject of the current survey. The historic building survey has identified some evidence for the different phases of construction of the property. It is clear that internally the historic floor plans have been altered with the current staircase to the first and second floors being a modern creation. The building at one time was clearly utilised for some industrial or warehouse function, as indicated by the large western gable with supported loft and survival of internal lifting machinery. What survives of the lifting machinery is relatively simple and unsubstantial, which may suggest that whatever was being lifted into the loft was small and light, but it is recognised that some of the lifting mechanism, and related features, may have been removed.
