York Minster_261011_0362

A small section of architecture at the rear of York Minster.

 

York Minster is the largest Gothic Cathedral in northern Europe. Before the Minster, the first church here was a wooden structure, built in 627 for the baptism of the King Edwin of Northumbria, following his marriage to a Christian. The present Minster was first commissioned in 1220.
