Beautiful York Minster

Where on earth has this summer gone?!  Can't believe how quickly the time has flown ... yes, I know, a sure and certain sign of old age!  Really wanted to share these photos of York Minster from my recent holiday.



The evening sun was shining making the whole place glow beautifully.


Can just imagine what this place must have looked like when it was newly built, must have been really impressive to see.



Of course cathedrals were built to inspire awe and wonder - still works for me today!  You can read more about this beautiful building at York Minster website.  Such a beautiful place.


Joining with Inspired Sunday - come and have a look at lots of churches from all over the world.


Love, Liz

You were there at just the right time. You could have convinced us that it was built of gold! So many interesting carvings and statures.

Oh it is beautiful Liz! I love the immensity and detail of cathedrals-so much skill and dedication! We went to a wedding at Lincoln Cathedral in July and it was breathtaking!x

I used to visit York frequently in the 1970s and the Minister was always impressive - love that gargoyle.

It IS a beautiful cathedral, always a pleasure to visit, and you've photographed it really well. Wonderful. I do find York Minster a little sterile inside though, compared to others. And expensive (though not as bad as Westminster or St Paul's!).
