York Minster Magic


A first trip south of the border for several years – led to visits to York Minster and the National Railway Museum (Blog coming soon) en-route Holyhead and ultimately on to Ireland (Blogs to follow).

York Minster was fantastic – if you recall I blogged my images of Notre Dam not too long after the fire and of course I recall the York Minster fire which occurred not long after I had joined the RAF – so it was wonderful to see the fully refurbished Cathedral. It did not disappoint – I found myself completely lost in the experience – in fact I ended up with 35 edits from this one visit alone – in fact I may well post a second blog with a collection of the small details. Anyway enjoy what I have selected for this post – I have to say the Chapter House completely blew me away and I dallied there for ages with very few interruptions.


  1. My wife-to -be and I visited not long after the fire as students on a camping holiday. I vaguely remember there being scaffolding and plastic sheeting there. Your top shot is rather splendid.

  2. A great place…. one of my favourite Cathedrals (we are spoilt for choice really) and some great shots. Glad you are taking us on your ‘Grand Tour’ lets enjoy 🙂

    1. A UK Grand Tour, Scotland, England, Wales, Ireland and Northern Ireland as usual too large an itinerary. Scotland isn’t tripping over such Cathedrals, Glasgow and St Giles are much smaller, although I haven’t shot St Giles as a photographer (just attended a Remembrance Service with 603 Sqn). So I really enjoyed it
