A is for Astrological Archway


The arch above the doorway of St Margaret's church on Walmgate dates from the mid 12th century. Amongst the collection of carvings of devils and dragons one of the arches is decorated with the signs of the Zodiac.

    1. The church is now the National Centre for Early Music so not always open to visitors, worth checking it will be open before you visit.
