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.

Awesome photos of York Minster! I’m glad to hear that its fire damages were repaired ahead of schedule, in four years!
