ONE of York's oldest and smallest shops has been put on the market.

Number 72 Goodramgate is part of the historic ‘Our Lady's Row,’ a terrace of 14th century cottages which are York's oldest surviving row of houses, says property consultant Andrew Hedley, of Blacks Property Consultants.

"It’s a shop where both the property and its window display attract attention – exceptional levels of interest at times,"  he said.

He said the shop had just 134 sq.ft. of selling space on the ground floor and the same above, while the former Bon Marche shop just across the road was 37 times bigger.

He added that the shop was now available after its previous tenant, Born of Botanics,' had moved to Stonegate as part of its success and expansion plans.
