Full Description

8-10 Albion Street: Site of a terrace of three small dwellings, built in c.1820. Albion Street was one of the earliest redevelopments of York within the walls, projected and in part built in 1815. The ground had formed the gardens behind John Carr's own house in Skeldergate, left to his nephew William Carr, who sold the land in 1815 in two lots. It seems that the main developers were George Willoughby of Old Malton, builder, and Leonard Overend of York, slater, but one lot was acquired by Ralph Peacock, raff merchant.

Terrace forming 8,9,10 Albion Street were erected by 1823 (Baines Directory (1823), II, 70–2). Cottage and tenements erected and street projected in 1815 (YCA, E. 96 ff. 243v, 249v); not laid out until 1816, when described as 'new made' (E. 97 f. 19v) but not named. Houses erected c. 1815 by John Taylor, cabinet maker, and H. Headley, flax merchant. Terrace. Each 1½ bays x 2 storeys. Doorways with reeded surrounds and rectangular fanlights. Windows with red brick flat arches
