I would guess that most tourists miss this spot. It seems to be one more small doorway in a line of ancient buildings in the Shambles. In fact, I was being guided through York by a resident of North Yorkshire, who prides herself on her knowledge of local history, but who had never noticed the shrine before - despite having been through the Shambles many times. When we visited, we noticed the reverent atmosphere - a simple, holy, place. There were several people there, meditating, praying. Stepping into the space was like being transported back 500 years.
