Treasurer's garden

For my money the most beautiful house in York, the Treasurer's House, happened to have the garden gates open as I passed by recently. Originally the home of York Minster Treasurer it sits next to the Minster giving stunning views from the garden. It does however have a slightly dodgy line in garden statuary, part of the collection of former owner Frank Green I suspect. He is described on the National Trust website as an eccentric bachelor with a very particular sense of taste and style! Close up statue picture tomorrow!!


  1. Lovely shot - looking forward to tomorrow's close-up.

  2. Ah yes, I remember this house. Doesn't the National Trust have a tea room in the basement? We did not have a chance to tour the house, regrettably, while we were there.

  3. Not sure what the pay was but the house that went with the job is just fine.
