Tour of Medieval Malton

Saturday 8th September 2018 11am - 12.30 repeated 2pm - 3.30pm

Join our volunteer Collections Manager Ann Clark as she takes you on a journey around Malton’s market place and surrounding streets discovering its Medieval past. The tour will explain the findings from the current Heritage Lottery Fund project in which a group has explored the origins of New Malton, established in the 12th century and laid out in what are known as ‘burgage plots’.

If you look at the shops today, paying attention to the frontage and “back lanes”, you may not notice their architectural or historical importance – so why are they special?

They are the remains of ‘burgage plots’ laid out in the 12th century and still retain some of their original shape and size. As very little of the town centre has changed, we can see how the town was first laid out including some of the ‘burgage’ plots dating back nearly 800 years.

Please note this is a walking tour and the ground is uneven under foot. The tour will start and end at Malton Museum.

Cost £5 per person
