This is a panoramic of 10 photos stitched together to make a complete image of York Minster.
Please visit my website

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 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 Metropolitan Church of St Peter in York. Services in the Minster are sometimes regarded as on the high church Anglo-Catholicism side of the Anglican scale.1

It has a very wide Decorated Gothic nave and chapter house, a Perpendicular Gothic choir and east end, and Early English north and south transepts. The nave contains the West Window, constructed in 1338, and over the Lady Chapel in the east end is the Great East Window, (finished in 1408), the largest expanse of medieval stained glass in the world. In the north transept is the Five Sisters Window, each lancet being over 16 metres (52 ft) high. The south transept contains the famous Rose window.

    Hey Tom great image and good to see in the new heritage and trust group, im surprised you havent added to David Lori’s panororamic group

  • Thanks alot Philip, I am a member of the panoramic group but i thought it had to be on a scale of at least 3:1 to 5:1 and i have cropped this to a normal scale 3:2
    Although this is a pan it is 10 shots but 2 rows of 5 shots
