Here's a view from the city walls - champion sight, as any good Yorkshireman would exclaim.
Approaching Yorkminster Cathedral. A nice day (no rain) meant that hordes of tourists were about.
The west doors of the Cathedral. We arrived too late for morning service but returned for choral evensong, which celebrated the 800th anniversary of the awarding of a city charter by King John (three years later that unfortunate monarch had more pressing concerns at Runnymede, so perhaps it was as well that the burghers of York got to him when they did).
Well there's a surprise; a soon-to-be ex-Archbishop of Canterbury and one of his possible successors.
In the shadow of Archbishop Sentamu's cathedra, St Michael Le Belfrey upholds the banner of Evangelicalism.
On a lighter note, this band made a joyful noise as we took a stroll through the town in the early afternoon.
