British Isles trip, part 15: York Minster

Link to photo dump.

York Minster is yet another amazing place. (I know I keep saying that, but it's true.) It's gargantuan. Construction on the current church began in the 13th century, and it contains some of the largest and oldest stained glass windows in Europe, dating from the 14th and 15th centuries. (Unfortunately, the largest and most famous, the East Window, is currently undergoing restoration and can't be seen right now.)
