The medieval Shambles of York; cobbled and imposing, you could be forgiven for feeling each step taken reverberates with historical significance.
Once lined with butcher upon butcher, Shambles was designed intentionally to be compact and evade sunlight that may have spoiled the wares once purveyed.
Nowadays, there isn’t such an establishment in sight, yet you may notice a meat-hook or two hanging outside some premises.
It’s part of the charm, some might say.
Saint Margaret Clitherow, English martyr of the Roman Catholic Church, and wife of one of the Shambles butchers of old, is honoured with a shrine in the vicinity.
The inspiration for many a fiction, this example of medieval purveyance is one of the most well-preserved in Europe, and has a quality of entrancement to the flocks who visit.
