A good head for heights was needed at York Minster yesterday as an important milestone was celebrated.
Glyn Webster, Acting Dean and Canon Chancellor of York Minster, was joined by members of the York Minster Stoneyard on the roof of the Minster to mark the completion of the North Quire pinnacles.
The work has allowed the conserved St William Window to be revealed for the first time in almost 15 years. The window is one of the most important pieces of medieval stained glass in the world, illustrating the miracles of St William of York and created by John Thornton around the start of the 15th century.
Rebecca Thompson, superintendent of works, said: “This has been an interesting project.”
