Pavement

Pavment’s name comes from an old French word meaning paved way. A street of this name can also be found in Nottingham. Herbert House, a timber house in the Pavement dates from 1620 and was on the site of a house belonging to Christopher Herbert, who was a wealthy merchant and a Lord Mayor of London.

All Saints church in the Pavement is sandwiched between High Ousegate and Coppergate at the southern end of the Pavement. Saxon and Viking tomstones can be seen in the church that was mentioned in the Domesday Book. The church and its tower date mainly from the 14th and 15th centuries. All Saints’ lantern tower once guided travellers through the Forest of Galtres (to the north of York) but now a lantern is lit in memory of the residents of York who died during the two world wars. Thomas Percy, the 7th Earl of Northumberland was executed on scaffolding just outside the church in 1572. His head was displayed on Micklegate Bar.
