York in all her Glory!
Alphabe-Thursday has arrived at the letter ‘Y’ & this has given me the chance to share one of our favourite places in England – York!
In the centre of this quaint, bustling city sits the Minster. A truly grand example of man’s dedication to God. In 1984 a dreadful fire raged through the South transept area causing severe damage which took over 4 years to repair. The children’s programme ‘Blue Peter’ ran a competition for children to design some replacement bosses. It is wonderful to see them when you visit & imagine how many centuries they will be viewed. The children’s parents must be so proud. See them here
Among York’s other attractions are it’s castle & museum which houses a fantastic Viking centre (Yorvik Museum) & a recreated Victorian street. For those whose passion is the smell of locomotive steam then the National Railway museum is close by.
It is a MUST SEE so for my American visitors – put it on your bucket list! Here are some pictures to give you a feel of what you will see!
