Rare wall paintings discovered in flat on historic road in York


Recommended Posts



Historic paintings discovered during renovation work at a flat could unlock more information about the development of a famous York street.

Luke Budworth uncovered the friezes, believed to be about 400 years old, on a wall at his home in Micklegate.

Historic England said the paintings may be of national significance and reveal more about the history of the street.

Dr Budworth said he was "very excited" to find the friezes and wants to conserve them for future generations.

The 29-year-old moved into the flat in October 2020 and was having a kitchen fitted last year when the paintings were found boarded up just below the ceiling on both sides of a chimney.
