is seated on the south bank of the
Ouse, over which is a ferry, and was
formerly one of the chief places of re-
sidence of the Archbishops of York,
who had here a magnificent palace or
castle, the gate-house of which, erected
about the middle of the fifteenth cen-
tury, is all that remains of its former
grandeur. The place receives some
interest from the residence of Cardinal
Wolsey, who here passed some months
after his fall from power, and who was
here arrested, on a charge of high trea-
son, by the Earl of Northumberland :
it is needless to relate, that he termi-
nated his extraordinary career of am-
bition in the abbey at Leicester, on his
journey to the metropolis.
