All Saints' lantern 2, York

An older close-up of the lovely octagonal lantern tower shown a week ago, 21 April 2010. Not surprisingly, it is a York favourite. Mainly 14th century, All Saints Pavement is the Guild church of York and is reputedly the resting place of 39 former Lord Mayors. The lantern served to direct medieval travellers approaching York through the Forest of Galtres to the north of the city.

  1. Nice photo. I love how old your buildings are over there, being around such history is intoxicating.

  2. Thanks T. Not all York buildings are beautiful. Watch out for some 70s horrors!
