Yorkshire Photos

Views from all over East Yorkshire, North Yorkshire and York

All Saints, North Street241 viewsDimly lit when not in use, bright sunshine through the windows of this church can give strange effects.
All Saints, Pavement224 viewsThe lantern tower of this church can be seen all over the city. It was once used to guide travellers through the surrounding Forest of Galtres. There is some modern stained glass inside, which is as well crafted as any ancient stuff.
Café in Spurrier Gate235 viewsDoes an excellent steak and mushroom pie, but gets full at weekends. Once a church, it has seen a tasteful conversion and it has not changed the original structure much.
Clifford's Tower232 viewsOnce part of the castle, the tower was the scene of a massacre of the local Jewish population in 1190. The rest of the castle became a prison and then a museum. The tower fell into disrepair after an explosion in 1684.
View from Clifford's Tower230 viewsA bit misty that day but you can still see the Minster in the distance and the lantern tower of All Saints, Pavement is clearly visible.
1680 Engraving of Clifford's Tower.227 viewsInside the tower itself are prints of several old engravings of how it used to look.
The Little Admiral235 viewsA clock on the side of St Martins Church, Coney Street.
Constantine's Statue242 viewsConstantine came to Britain with his father, the emperor Constantius, in 305. Constantius died the following year in York and Constantine was declared emperor.
The Foss242 viewsA very picturesque tributary of the Ouse.
The Ouse Encroaching the Houses244 viewsNearly every year, the Ouse bursts its banks and water enters the nearby buildings. Here it is almost there.
The Entrance to the Merchant Adventurers Hall240 viewsThe coat of arms and motto of the guild.
Inside the Merchant Adventurers Hall238 viewsThe meeting place of an ancient merchants' guild. The roof timbers show fine craftsmanship.
