High Petergate and Low Petergate

Petergate was the Via Principa, or main cross street of  Eboracum (the Roman name for York). The statue of Minerva, Goddess of Wisdom, sitting with an owl and a pile of books, a reminder of the days when this was the street of bookbinders and booksellers. This point is also the main road intersection of Roman York and the entrance to the Principia - the Roman military headquarters.

These streets are always busy and have been since medieval times but lots of interesting shops and buildings.

 

Looking north-west up Low Petergate towards the Minster, which always seem to be in view.

 

The odd street musician can be seen and heard.
