20, St Andrewgate, York - the house that Atkinson built for himself

Thomas Atkinson (1729–1798) was an English architect, best remembered for remodelling Bishopthorpe Palace in the Gothic Revival style.

Life[edit]

Little is known of Atkinson's life. His practice was based in York, and the house that he built there for himself in about 1780 still stands at 20, St. Andrewgate in the city centre.
