Entrance to the former drill hall
Now serving as the entrance to a hardware store, this is the ornate doorway of the former drill hall in St Andrewgate. The building was designed in the late 19th century by Gould and Fisher for the First West Yorkshire (York) Rifle Volunteer Battalion and bears a Latin inscription above the arch, "Pro Aris Et Focis" - For our altars and our home.
