York Minster sure is a purty building!

I didn't realise you could get up there. There's some gorgeous lines and repetition in the rooftops and chimneys etc. Only time i've seen it is when I went up in the Eye.

The reason i actually went up there was to try and spot the terrys chocolate factory haha.

Nice pic's Marvyn of the starvin, is the scaffold still up on the east window by any chance?

31-12-2010, 06:09 PM
Yes it is hehehe....

Why thank you young Starvin..

So are the public allowed up there or was it a stealth mission? I've just got to get up there.
I'm still amazed how you missed Terrys. Heh. The area me and Grea got in at even has a parking spot. Haha

The tower is open but it was expensive for me, and after paying to get into the bloody place anway i wasnt going to pay another 7 to go up the tower. There was no one around at the bottom so i just wandered up.

There is an old woman at the top though in a hut who was questioning me.

On the way up theres loads of different doors going off into different spires and turrets, different walkways and secret passages and stuff. I went through quite a few of them to get some of the shots i did.

I'd take a torch because some of the passage ways going off into the minster arnt lit...
