Bike Shed, Micklegate, York
York has four ‘gates’ or ‘bars’ leading into to the city and Micklegate is the one most familiar to me.
I grew up in York, going to nearby Bar Convent school and would often cycle into town along Micklegate, aware of its Roman origins and that it was part of the Great North Road.
I completed this drawing a few months ago and have posted it in full on my website Drawing the Street. It’s the first stage of drawing the entire length of Micklegate and I’m delighted to share it with you here in sections.
Limited edition prints are available for sale through the website or from Blossom Street Framing and Gallery, York.
