York – the Minster

Virtually everyone who visits York has to visit the Minster, and so did we.

I was luckier than most visitors as I had two guides. My guide to the exterior was Robin who impressed with his knowledge of all things architectural.

Once inside I relied on Jude better known in my blog as the Undergardener. She was not up to the standard of the Robin however.

To share our visit simply click on a photo and enjoy my gallery. The pictures do not illustrate all the restoration and development work that is necessary to ensure that the Minster continues to dominate the York skyline for centuries to come.  So before the gallery is a photo of what the Minster looks like from the front with the ever-present construction machinery.

I share my garden with Jude my wife a newly retired teacher , eight assorted chickens and a plethora of wildlife. Jude does all the heavy work as I have a damaged spine and right leg.
