York Minster

In York at the moment.  Several visits to hear choral evensong: wonderful.

For anyone who’s never been (or wants a reminder), I’ve uploaded a 360 degree view of nave here, and the chapter house here.

Here are some ordinary pictures:

A ceiling boss showing Mary bottle-feeding the infant Jesus (a ‘Victorianism’!):

The headless ladies with a semaphore message on the west wall (click to enlarge and decode):

The nave, a clock which chimes every 15 minutes when the two ‘soldiers belt the metal bars with their weapons, the view up the tower, the organ, and a sneak peek at the choir in rehearsal:

The roof of the octagonal chapter house – the largest of it’s type – unsupported:
