York Minster

York Minster was the first item on my list when I arrived in York, it is a fairly typical Gothic Cathedral but the tour had some interesting stories. Such as the ceiling bosses which had to be replaced in the Victorian period after a fire but one of the original medieval bosses portrayed the virgin mary breastfeeding the infant Jesus but the Victorian artist had to alter it so Mary was now feeding him with a bottle. There were also some late 16th century funeral effigies worth having a look at.
