The stone remnants seen today of the Archbishops of York's Southwell Palace date back to the 1450's when the Archbishops Palace was completed. The Norman stone building replaced the Saxon building believed to be mainly of timber construction. The State Chamber was used by visiting Monarchs and Archbishops for their accommodation and to give audience. The Palace was of large quadrangular form. The Palace was ruined in the Civil War and King Charles I surrender here to Cromwell's troops in 1446. The townsfolk and troops plundered the Palace removing stone and roofing. The ruins are best viewed from the adjacent Education Gardens.
