Ruins of the palace of the Archbishop of York, with Southwell Minster in the background.
The church is believed to have been founded in 627 by Paulinus, first Archbishop of York. The current Cathedral is the Norman build which replaced an Anglo-Saxon Minster, with later medieval additions. Charles I was captured near here during the English Civil War.
Accessibility: considering the age of the buildings, rather impressive. There are level floors throughout with ramps and plenty of seating (although steps up into the choir area). The palace has a lift up to the state room and a ramp into the garden - the only difficult bit is the heavy entrance door.
I have been in so many churches now and I must say the architecture is stunning - they are always so different inside 😍 Glad I had time to ketch-up with Jesus, lettuce praise & relish him because he loves me from my head to-ma-toes 🍅😂
My Mum came to visit over to weekend and she wanted to see Gloucester Cathedral (which she loved). It’s pretty much the one saving feature of Gloucester although the Docks are looking better every year. Freya enjoyed posing for photos and taking (slightly blurry) photos of me. #gloucester#Cathedral#mum#3generations#girlsout#culture#history
