About the Event
York Cemetery Trust is delighted to be hosting a colloquium on James Pigott Pritchett of York: Architect [1789 - 1868] at York Cemetery on 21st October 2023.
From Pritchett's arrival in York in 1813 to join Charles Watson, the partnership made significant architectural contributions to Late Georgian Yorkshire: including domestic projects for the Fitzwilliams at Wentworth Woodhouse and large civic commissions such as the West Riding Pauper Lunatic Asylum. Subsequently, Pritchett & Sons went on to establish a reputation as leading church and cemetery designers whose works include the Neoclassical York Cemetery Chapel and gatehouse. Once described as ' a whig-radical dissenter' Pritchett, a committed Congregationalist who established Lendal Chapel, was an outspoken supporter of numerous charitable and philanthropic causes.
