St. Williams College York

St. Williams College York
I found myself at a conference in York last month without a camera so had to fall back on my phones tiny camera

The conference was held at St Williams College it is situated in the shadows of York Minster, in the heart of the city. It is one of the finest examples of a medieval timber framed building In England. St Williams College’s history dates back to 1461 and is named after a nephew of King Stephen. It was built as a school for the Minster priests up until the sixteenth century. It was then divided up into living quarters for some of the more fortunate residence of the city. St Williams then fell into a bad state of disrepair, but fortunately for York was purchased and renovated back to its former glory by Francis Green who was also the owner of York’s Treasurers House with help from the local council. He then sold it to the council for the same price he had paid for it himself. Rather good to spend a useful day in such an historic building

P.S
My contact PikPix sent me this link yesterday, which I thought some of you, might like to look at the word awesome is rather over used on Flickr but the word is appropriate for this image
