History

Caption for York, St Olave's Church, Marygate C1885

During the siege of York it is thought that guns were placed on the roof here, but there is some controversy about this. In about 1720 St Olave's was almost entirely rebuilt with stone from St Mary's Abbey. Adjacent to the church there was once a chapel called St-Mary-at-the-Gate, of which a small portion of the stonework still survives.
