York Minster is one of the largest places of worship in Europe. The Minster was built over a period of 250 years, between 1220 and 1472 and, at the time, was at the forefront of gothic architecture. Like Notre Dame in Paris, York minster suffered a serious fire in 1984 which was apparently caused by a bolt of lightning, resulting in £2.25m worth of damage. The project to restore the Minster to its former glory was completed one year ahead of schedule in 1988.
