Acaster Malbis

During the medieval period in Britain the Jewish people were heavily persecuted, one of the heavy persecutions was carried out in York. A group of Jewish people fled to Acaster Mathis, and used the parish church for meeting. Some local villagers managed to trap the group inside and then set fire to the building - killing all those who were trapped inside. Tradition suggests that stains on the window sills are the bloodstains of those who perished.

Directions: To the South of York reached via a minor road off the A64.
