Feature Locations: Bishopthorpe Removals

Written by on February 2, 2017

Bishopthorpe Road

For the first time, our Feature Locations series looks towards the city of York and the historic village of Bishopthorpe to the south of the city walls. The Main Street, the palace and other parts of the village were made a conservation area in 1989.

Moving to Bishopthorpe

It was a famous removal to the town that gave Bishopthorpe its name today. Originally known as Thorpe-on-Ouse or St Andrewthorpe, it was in the 13th century when an Archbishop bought a manor house and gave it to the Dean of York Minster which prompted a change. The manor house became known as Bishopthorpe Palace. Many of the roads in Bishopthorpe are named after previous Archbishops that have resided in the area.

Pictured above is the link road between Bishopthorpe and York called Bishopthorpe Road, or Bishy Road for short. This road is often nominated for high street of the year. There are plenty of local shops, pubs and other amenities in central Bishopthorpe.

Extremely great service

5 Stars

Overall safe and effective storage although my unit occasionally leaked when it rained.The continual fee increases during Covid were unacceptable and my complaints received no reply. Compulsory insurance issued by McCarthys is another rip off factor.

2 Stars

Brilliant overall experience will definitely recommend and use again
