A view of York Minster.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

York Minster is a Gothic cathedral in York, England and is one of the largest of its kind in Northern Europe alongside Cologne Cathedral. The minster is the seat of the Archbishop of York, the second-highest office of the Church of England, and is the cathedral for the Diocese of York; it is run by a dean and chapter under the Dean of York. The formal title of York Minster is The Cathedral and Metropolitical Church of St Peter in York.1 The title “Minster” is attributed to churches established in the Anglo Saxon period as missionary teaching churches, and serves now as an honorific title.1 Services in the minster are sometimes regarded as on the High Church or Anglo-Catholic end of the Anglican continuum

    Superb, Trevor. I’ve considered the possibilities from here myself but the light has never yet been obliging. Lovely shot of this outstanding architecture.

  • Thanks very much for your comments Steve…I have only took a shot on a night before so this was something different..only trouble there’s allways to many people about.

    I’m just looking at this…and here in America…there are some churches like this, but not the detailed intensity of this. the first thing i felt when i saw this was the Belief and the Fear of God. meaning….the One does exist !

  • Thank you Theo…it’s a beautiful minster, with some of the parts of the building over 600 years old.
