The scene behind the alter depicts the crowns of all the saints ascending to heaven. It was made by the Broderers’ Guild in 1974 when the chapel was refurbished.

  1. How many chapels are there in York Minster?
    I don’t remember seeing so many there, C. ;)

    I’m just loving this tour you’re taking us on. And – what wonderful regal color in this one.

    They allow photography inside, Cherie?

    • CherryPie says:

      Well of course (for personal use)…. That is why I have so many photos of the interior…

      The only place photos aren’t allowed is in the undercroft and I suspect that is because it houses the treasury.

        You didn’t have a sneak peek then? :)

          Well of course I saw the treasury. That was the least interesting part of the under-croft as far as I was concerned ;-) The archaeological aspects and other remains are Wow!!!

          I respect the no photography rule and understand why it is in place. Those that choose to flout the rule (not bright enough to understand the reasons why) could lead to all cameras being banned from the Minster…

  6. WOw Cherie you certainly have got great mileage out of York Minster!
