York Minster - Autumn View


The title “Minster” is attributed to churches established in the Anglo Saxon period as missionary teaching churches, and is now an honorific title. The first recorded church on this site was in AD 627, although the Romans may have found a Christian church already here in AD 71, the current cathedral was consecrated in 1472.

The Cathedral and Metropolitical Church of St Peter in York or The Minster, as it is known locally, holds a special place in the heart of many York born people, whether they are practicing Christians or not. I suspect it has always been thus. Seen here from the city walls on a fine autumn day it is not hard to see why.
