Full Description

Property dating from late 16th to early 17th Century, though considerably modified and rebuilt numerous times, including rear extenstions dating from the 19th and the 20th century. The 19th century extension comprised a three storey mid-19th century warehouse.

The property at 97 Micklegate was adjacent to the 13th century Priory Gatehouse, which was demolished in 1854 during the consruction of Priory Street, which may have required some remoddling of the building. During this period 97 Micklegate had a rendered front façade, jettied at the front and lit by multi-pane timber sash windows at first floor level, whilst at first floor level it included canted bay windows and the entrance onto the street. It is most likely that this was a domestic dwelling though the presence of warehouses to the rear suggests the possibility of some commerical use.

By c.1900, the canted windows at the front of 97 had been replaced by a shopfront, with William Merry's bakery occupying the building from c.1911. The frontage of 97 was further remoddled during the 1930s with glazed windows and stained upper lights, the modern shopfront obscuring the first floor jetty.

By the 1960's, 97 Micklegate was in use as a café and confectionary shop, and the side elevation on Priory Street acquried its current form.
