Historic Steam Engines at Railway Museum, York

This morning we commenced our York Tour at the famous Minster (Cathedral). This is a massive and awe inspiring edifice dating from the 13th and 14th centuries built in the Gothic and Early English styles. It replaced an earlier, 11th century Norman building but there is a history of Christian worship on the site dating back to the 7th century and probably much earlier. The scale and quality of the masonry and other works is very impressive. We spent about an hour here with one guest climbing the nearly 300 steps up one of the three towers for a panoramic view over York and beyond.
