House, No. 67 was originally a three-storey timber-framed structure of two bays, probably of the 16th or 17th century, with two gables towards the street. Early in the 18th century it was rebuilt in brick with a new roof parallel to the street, but some of the original structural timbers remain inside. The fenestration of the top floor was altered later, and the front of the ground floor has been removed to insert a new shop front, which forms a unified composition with Nos. 69 and 71 adjoining. The interior has been much altered, and there are later additions to the rear of early 19th-century date. This was probably a butcher's shop for a long period: the successive occupiers William Hill (from before 1798), Chamberlain of York 1807, and Peter Armistead, Chamberlain 1823, belonged to that trade (YCA, E.96, f. 105; E.97, f. 143v.; Rate Books; Directories). On the street front the windows have exposed box frames and heavy glazing bars. A rainwater head is dated 1763
