The National Centre for Early Music

… but not so early as to wake up the neighbours.

The NCEM is housed in the medieval St Margaret's Church within the city walls, just off Walmgate.  The home page gives you the view above without the snow and yesterday's modern town houses are back up the short lane, on the opposite side of the road.

Once again, the use of contrasting building materials is very satisfying. I particularly like  the tower, with its dressed stone angles.
