Camera Nikon D90 with Nikkor 16-85mm lens. (See NOTES).

York Minster is a cathedral in York, England, one of the largest of its kind in Northern Europe. The minster is the seat of the Archbishop of York, the second-highest office of the Church of England and is the cathedral for the Diocese of York. The formal title of York Minster is "The Cathedral and Metropolitical Church of St Peter in York". The title "minster" is attributed to churches established in the Anglo-Saxon period as missionary teaching churches and serves now as an honorific title.
The minster has a wide Decorated Gothic nave and chapter house, a Perpendicular Gothic choir and Early English north & south transepts. The nave contains the West Window, constructed in 1338. Over the Lady Chapel in the East end is the Great East Window, (finished in 1408), the largest expanse of medieval stained glass in the world. In the north transept is the Five Sisters Window, each lancet being over 16 metres (52 ft) high. The south transept contains a famous rose window, while the West Window contains a famous heart-shaped design, colloquially known as 'The Heart of Yorkshire'.
